Academic Accents of the New Year 

By Dean Ivy M. Hixson 

Fall fashions, academically speaking, are best previewed 
in the opening week — which for the year 1963-64 began 
on Friday the thirteenth with a total of 90 people making 
up the fall showing of Salem faculty and administrative 
officials. There are 63 full and part-time persons who 
teach college students in the classroom and in the studios; 
and those teaching include 31 men and 32 women, the 
equivalent of 45 full-time teachers for an enrollment of 
500 students. 

Fall accents among the faculty include the return of Mr. 
Sanders, who has completed the doctorate, and the return 
of Mr. Jordan and Mr. Shewmake. In 1963-64 Mr. Heide- 
mann. Dr. Paine, and Miss Samson will be absent on leave; 
and six faculty members at Salem will be devoting their 
free time to the completion of dissertations or other doc- 
toral requirements. With the addition of a few new facul- 
ty, a few new courses, and a few new policies, the academic 
accents of the new year will be readily recognizable. 

The arrival of 154 new students, the return of almost 
300 "old" ones, and the registration of more than 50 
special students forecast many accents for the fall semester; 
not until the end of the spring semester on May 31 will 
the full kaleidoscope of academic fashions of 1963-64 be 
fully known. 

The new students bring a record of extensive reading 
from Salem's Reading List and reports indicate that more 
than half of them have spent many summer hours at the 
typewriter in preparation for the inevitable term papers. 
The academic accents of the class of 1967 seem numerous 
with emphasis on English, mathematics, history, music, 
sciences, and art. Interest in a teaching career is the accent 
of approximately half of the new students, while medical 
technology, biological research, social work, and a number 
of other professions seem also to be vocational goals. 

Among the returning students the accent is strongest in 
English, history, economics-sociology, mathematics, French, 
and music. In the senior class of 92 members, the student 
teachers total 38; it is hoped that other degree candidates 
will be nominated for Woodrow Wilson Fellowships and 
that the accent will be on winning candidates. During the 
summer more than 150 students attended more than 50 
different summer schools — another form of academic 

In the fall semester the strongest accent will be on 
Teacher Education, highlighted by a formal visit, October 
20-23, of the Committee appointed by the State Depart- 
ment of Public Instruction to investigate Salem's new pro- 
gram in Teacher Education. In preparation the faculty 
worked throughout 1962-63 on its Self-Study Report on 
Teacher Education, a production of more than 300 pages 
describing, explaining, and demonstrating the new Pro- 
gram Approach. The curriculum underwent certain addi- 
tions, deletions, and revisions as Education 200, a six- 
semester hour course. Fine and Practical Arts, came into 
being, supplanting separate courses in the areas and meth- 
ods of art, music, and physical education for the elemen- 
tary teacher. There has been expansion in Education 224, 

Techniques of Teaching in the Elementary School, revision 
in Education 210, Children's Literature, and the addition of 
Mathematics 20, Elementary Number Theory and Sets. 

In various major departments numerous accents are 
evident. Art history now includes courses in Ancient, 
Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque Art, Modern Art, and 
American Art. The art major must complete a course in 
Graphics or in Ceramics before presenting the required 
senior exhibit. The Department of Classical Languages 
and Literature takes continued pride in the well-attended 
Greek course and in the added Latin courses. It is hoped 
that Salem can make a real contribution to the shortage 
of Latin teachers. 

In Economics-Sociology more is demanded of the major 
and there is increasing accent on comparative economic 
systems, and on sociology courses concerned with juvenile 
delinquency, criminology, minority groups, and social wel- 
fare. In two of the most popular majors, English and His- 
tory, the demand continues for a wide variety of courses, 
with Advanced Composition, American Literature, English 
History, Russian History, and Asian Studies, currently in 
high favor. 

In pointing out the accents of other academic areas it 
must be noted that the lessened emphasis on Home Eco- 
nomics in high school has seemed to evoke less interest 
on the college level; a change in emphasis for the home 
economics major will undoubtedly result and already the 
faculty are studying possible changes. The area of mathe- 
matics continues to move at a pace too fast for all but Mr. 
Curlee and his colleagues. The freshman program includes 
Analytic Geometry and Calculus; and recently added 
courses are Linear Algebra, Number Theory, and Set 

In the Department of Modern Languages the oral ac- 
cent has been strengthened by the language laboratory in 
Main Hall; and in 1963-64 the qualified student may 
register for independent laboratory study in spoken French 
or in spoken Spanish. The final examination in these 
courses will very likely consist of a conversation in the 

Art Professor Ed Sheivmake's illustration of "How I Spent 
My Sabbatical Year" in Woodstock, N. Y. His cartoon how- 
ever belies the fact that he did 100 paintings, thirty of which 
were displayed in the first art exhibit at Salem this fall. 


language with the five members of the Modern Language 
Department. The summer purchase of 120 films and tapes 
of the Encyclopedia Brittanica Films, Inc. will bring 
French into full fashion as first and second year students 
enjoy ]e parte francais. 

In the field of Religion and Philosophy the current of- 
fering of three courses in Philosophy and the plan for new 
courses in Religion in the second semester should give 
emphasis to a department that does not have its full share 
of majors. Through the Biology and the Chemistry depart- 
ments students majoring in biology or in chemistry find 
excellent opportunities for the accents of graduate study, 
teaching, research, or medical technology. 

In the School of Music the students who complete 
majors are producing a fine record of continued study in 
graduate and professional schools. There is a stronger 
accent on keyboard skills, dictation, and sight-singing, and 
there are wider offerings in music literature and in Church 
Literature. The fact that six organs are used for organ 
practice makes evident the interest in this area of music. 
In 1963-64 the music student may even add the accent of 
flute! How great is the need for the new Fine Arts Build- 

Through appropriate faculty committees the accents for 
the new year will continue to focus on the superior stu- 
dent and at the same time on those individuals who have 
not yet given sufficient accent to their academic programs. 
In 196.3-64 the student body includes three freshman 
"Salem Scholars" selected by the Committee on Admissions 
for highest academic potentiality; it also includes senior 
scholars who have enrolled for Honors Work in their 
major field. The Senior Seminars, now offered in most 
of the departments, give accent to the total major field 
and culminate in comprehensive examinations. On the 
other hand, a system of academic probation — based on the 
quality point ratio of each semester — becomes effective 
in 1963-64 as a means of both encouraging and warning 
those students whose academic potentiality has not yet 
been sufficiently accented. 

May the academic fashions of Salem in 1963-64 give 
continued emphasis to the varied and significant accents 
that offer the individual student "enrichment for a useful 
life, intellectually, vocationally, culturally, morally, phy- 
ically, and spiritually." 

The Freshman Class of %1 

By Edith A. Kirkland, Director of Admissions 

The Class of 1967 is made up of 140 healthy, attractive, 
and wise students from 15 states and 4 foreign countries 
(Brazil, Colombia, Greece, and England). They are the 
products of 70 public high schools and 20 private schools 
in which approximately 65% ranked in the upper fifth 
or higher of their respective classes. 

This group has the distinction of having achieved the 
most impressive over-all scores on the College Boards of 
any previous freshman class, and according to the tests 
results, sound preparation is indicated in the areas of 
English, social studies, and science. There is also an in- 
crease in the number of possible math majors and the 
promise of greater proficiency in classical and modern 

This year's freshman class has a lion's share of valedic- 
torians, salutatorians, student government officers, class 
presidents, annual and newspaper editors, cheerleaders, ath- 
letes, musicians, Honor Society and FTA members. There 
are those described by their school counselors as being 
"outstanding" leaders, "faithful, effective" followers, "co- 
operative, but retiring," "poised and energetic," "usually 
purposeful," "strongly motivated," "concerned for others," 
"self-centered," "highly imaginative," "very factual". They 
are of assorted shapes, sizes, hair-dos, and skirt lengths. 

Fourteen religious denominations are represented in the 
group, and 44 of its members proudly proclaim their Salem 
"ancestry." Many were engaged in various types of volun- 
teer work in their home communities, some attended Girls' 
State, a few traveled or studied in foreign countries, and 
most of them share the common bond of having Salem 
as their first college choice. 

We shall follow with great interest the progress of one 
freshman who was so attracted to Salem in her junior year 
that she sold her beloved saddle horse in order to give 
more time to improving her high-school grades. This is 
indicative of the spirit and enthusiasm with which these 
normal, wholesome, and intelligent young women from 
New England to the Deep South are already making their 
presence known on campus in the best Salem tradition. 

New Faculty 

Three new faculty members are Dr. Margaret Weitzner, 
assistant professor of modern languages, Mr. Donald E. 
McLeod, assistant professor of biology, and Mr. Errol Mac- 
Gregor Clauss, instructor in history. 

Three temporary faculty substitutes this year are Mrs. 
Blevyn H. Wheeler in English for Dr. Stephen Paine; Mrs. 
George H. Home in piano for Professor Hans Heidemann; 
and Mrs. Betty J. Crossley in school music and musicology 
for Professor June Samson. 

Two new part-time instructors are Mrs. Marilyn Stowers 
in education and James E. Burgess in sociology. 

The Piedmont University Center 

This is a recently incorporated agency for sixteen insti- 
tutions in the Piedmont area of North Carolina built upon 
the concept of inter-institutional cooperation. 

Its purpose is to help member colleges in such proj- 
ects as sharing Visiting Scholars, Artists and Lecturers, 
sponsoring faculty research and library affairs, and arrang- 
ing for cooperative professorships. These benefits may be 
achieved with greater economy and effectiveness through 
the Center organization. 

The Piedmont Center opened its office in Winston- 
Salem in March, 1963, with Dr. Alvin R. Keppel as its 
first executive director. 

Admission to College . . . A Knotty Problem 

Director Kirkland Suggests Plan of Approach 

The current agitation of parents over the rlifficulty 
of having their children accepted by the colleges of their 
choice is by no means a one-sided problem. Colleges are 
genuinely distressed, not only by the fears and pressures 
which are becoming increasingly present in the approach 
of parents and students to the matter of college admis- 
sion, but also by the needless number of applications which 
end in rejection. A considerable reduction could be realized 
in the percentage of students failing to be admitted to 
one or more colleges if there was greater understanding 
of the importance of proper planning preparation, and 
selection at the high school level. 

The Admissions Office has been asked to lend a help- 
ing hand to Salem alumnae who are, or will be, concerned 
with this complex problem. We outlined a few suggestions 
which we hope will be of assistance to some in unraveling 
the Gordian knot of college admission for both sons and 

( 1 ) Encourage your child to begin an early study of 
the unit and entrance-test requirements of the colleges in 
which she thinks she may be interested. Because admis- 
sion policies and procedures undergo frequent revision, 
such requirements should be reviewed each year in order 
that high school subjects may be chosen accordingly. 

( 2 ) See to it that your child takes strong academic 
courses from grades 9 through 12, selected from the areas 
of English, classical and/or modern languages, mathema- 
tics, laboratory sciences, and social studies. 

( 3 ) Check on the type of entrance tests ( ACT, CEEB, 
etc.) required and on the recommended times for taking 
them. An increasing number of colleges now specify the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test and three Achievement Tests of 
the College Board. In most cases the SAT should be taken 
in December and the Achievement Tests in January of the 
senior year; Early Decision candidates are usually requested 
to fulfill these requirements in March and May of their 
junior term. The testing factor in college admission makes 
it feasible to include language and mathematics courses 
(advanced, if possible) in the eleventh and twelfth-grade 

(4) Set up a daily schedule for a definite number of 
uninterrupted hours of study — no radio, TV, or tele- 
phone calls allowed! One of the most important steps your 
daughter can take toward making a satisfactory adjustment 
to college, is to develop the habit of putting first things 

( 5 ) Restrain your child from engaging in too many 
extracurricular activities. Reasonable participation is desira- 
ble, but the number of activities in which she becomes in- 
volved should be governed somewhat by her academic 

(6) Encourage your daughter to read as much as 
possible; recommended book lists will be supplied by high 
schools and many colleges. Summer reading is a must! 

(7) Take your daughter to visit one or two of the 

colleges in which she has expressed interest, if she does 
not seem to understand the importance of working up to 
her full academic capacity. Even the busiest of college 
admissions officers welcome the opportunity to explain the 
necessity of serious, consistent scholastic endeavor at the 
secondary level. 

( 8 ) Do not make the mistake of setting your heart 
on a college for which your daughter is not adequately 
prepared. No matter how "well rounded" your child may 
be, all admissions committees will be primarily concerned 
with her ability to meet the demands of the faculty of 
the institution involved. Maintaining this policy is essential 
to a candidate's happiness and success in college and it 
would be unfair and unrealistic for her application to be 
considered on any other basis. 

Untangling the knotty problem of college admission 
can be accomplished with much greater ease if parents, 
students, and high schools pull together in mutual under- 
standing and effort. Such planning and cooperation may 
not always result in the student's acceptance by the college 
of her first choice, but her chances for favorable considera- 
tion by other (and perhaps more suitable) institutions 
will be greatly increased. In our opinion, there will always 
be a college eager to welcome the student who earnestly 
seeks to further her education and who can present docu- 
mentary evidence that her previous efforts have been di- 
rected toward this goal. 

The Governor's School 

News of North Carolina's unique summer school for 
gifted high school boys and girls has had nationwide cover- 
age in the press and on TV. The idea which originated 
with Governor Terry Sanford and his education staff, was 
endorsed by a grant from, the Carnegie Foundation and 
supplemented by an equal amount from Winston-Salem 
sources which provided the estimated cost of $450,000 for 
three summer sessions in 1963-64-65. Thus Salem's cam- 
pus was chosen as the place for this exciting experiment. 

Four hundred teen-agers were carefully selected from 
the thousands of students nominated by N. C. high schools. 
The integrated group included 20 Negro students. 

An excellent faculty of 27 was augmented by visiting 
specialists in education during the eight-week session. There 
were eleven fields from which each student chose a major 
concentration. The opportunity to learn of art, music, 
drama, dance, literature, mathematics or science was a 
stimulating challenge. No credit was given; learning for 
learning's sake was a rewarding process. 

The experience — which was free to all students — 
was approached with enthusiasm and appreciation. They 
respected Salem properties and cooperated in the rules and 
regulations. Their humor was expressed in their theme song 
"We Is Gifted" — a self-styled parody. 


. . . at Commencement 

Twenty-two students and one faculty member received 
awards of $1,425, of which the Alumnae Association pro- 
vides $1,125 yearly. 

The H. A. Pfohl Awards ( for character and influence )

highest average went to Jerry Gale Johnson, '65. 

The Mollie Cameron Turtle Award of the Class of '46 
goes to the junior with the highest average in home eco- 
nomics, Marrha Paisley, '64. 

The 20 President's Prizes were won by 18 students, 
two of whom received two each. These are judged by the 
faculty in each department for academic achievement. Nine 
seniors, two juniors, three sophomores and four freshmen 
were the recipients.

The Katharine Rondthaler Awards — engraved silver 
trays — were given in Art to Martha Jo Phifer Patton, 
'63; in Music to Mattie Gay Lee, '63; and in Creative 
Writing to Olivia Sowers, '64. Fifty-four entries from 27 
students were judged in the 1963 competition in these 
three fields. 

Certificates were awarded to the two foreign students 
on Hattie M. Strong Scholarships — Sara Di Stefano from 
Italy and Hungarian-born Judit Magos from Switzerland. 

Ten seniors taking comprehensive examinations in five 
departments received "Superior" rating. These were: in

Louisa Freeman and Julia Summerell. 

Cutn laude was achieved by May Brawley, Mrs. Linda 
Wall Combs, Marsha Ray, Martha Still and Sara Glenn 

Graduation Outdoors 

Graduation exercises were outdoors for the first time 
at the seniors' request. They took place in front of the 
Laura Lash Gilmer Science Building, where the tree- 
shaded area provided an attractive setting. 

The Commencement address was given by Dr. Alvin 
R. Keppel, executive director of the Piedmont University 
Center recently located in Winston-Salem. 

Dr. Keppel told the graduates — "This is your great 
commission — to translate into productive and worthy 
living that which your baccalaureate degree certifies that 
you have learned — remembering that morality makes a 
people strong; self-discipline makes a people free; and 
devotion to God makes a people great." 

The Class Gift of '63 was money for the cornerstone 
of the new Fine Arts Building. 

What Kind of Education for Women? 

(Quotes from Presidenl Gramley's speech at opening Convocation) 

In this period of ferment and rapid change increasing 
headaches and heartaches lie ahead unless people prepare 
educationally for the evolving future. Present patterns of 
change affect the economic system, the educational com- 
plex, racial relationships, church life, fiction, entertain- 
ment media, and morals and manners. 

Five observations I would make are these: 

That we in America are in the midst of our second 
great industrial revolution, a revolution based on accelerat- 
ed conquest of the laws of nature through science and 
technology and therefore more drastic than the first in- 
dustrial revolution. It is moving so fast that some observers 
say the body of scientific knowledge doubles every twenty 

That changes are moving at a heightened tempo to the 
extent, as Margaret Mead puts it, that no one dies any 
more in the world in which he was born. 

That we in the United States are an affluent society, suf- 
ficiently well fixed financially that no one anymore need 
suffer from hunger and destitution. 

That advances in medical science are increasing the life 
span to such an extent that not only is the national econ- 
omy affected but the psychological and other needs of our 
aging population are a challenge to all of us. 

The fifth observation is that women, who face a life 
expectancy of better than three score years and ten, need 
more than husband and children if they are to find fulfill- 
ment as persons in this changing civilization. 

As you well know, there is considerable furore and 
ferment these days about education in America. The objec- 
tive of all the voices and all the furore and all the ferment 
is to improve the quality of education in America and to 
extend the opportunity to more people. And in the process, 
actually, the present system and philosophy of American 
education generally, and of American higher education in 
particular, are being challenged. 

This is so because, basically, the system we now have is 
inadequate to meet the needs of the affluent and the less 
affluent, the whites and the Negroes, the men and the 
women in the changing society of which we are a part. 

We at Salem are particularly concerned about education 
of and for women. Conferences have been held and books 
written about this matter and there are two divergent 
viewpoints. One is that education for women should be 
designed and tailored to meet women's needs as wives and 
mothers. This implies that women are intellectually inferior 
to men and that a woman's identity is fixed solely by her 
biology. Too many women have accepted this viewpoint. 
With their household workday shortened by labor-saving 

appliances, too many women have too much free time on 
their hands without the educational background to fill 
profitably these empty hours. 

As Betty Freedan says in her recent book. The Feminine 
Mystique: "American women no longer know who they 
are. They are sorely in need of a new image to help them 
find their identity , . . they look for the image they will no 
longer take from their mothers." 

It is true that women comprise about one-third of our 
labor force. But too many women do not aspire to be 
physicians, college teachers, lawyers, engineers, architects, 
research chemists. 

Someone has asked: Should women be in science.-' The 
obvious answer is that women should not be in science 
any more than men should be. Only scientists should be 
in science. 

Ruth Hill Useem says: "In our complex, automated, 
highly organized society the labeling role of "Female" or 
"Male " is a luxury we can no longer afford." 

"A young woman, in order to validate her womanhood, 
feels pressured to choose marriage and not an occupation." 
This is the case too often with young women in college 
despite the fact that the odds are that both young women 
and young men eventually will be married and, in the 
future which lies ahead, both will be employed, the women 
in the early years and then again after the children have 
gone off to school, and the men, hopefully, all of the time. 

The second viewpoint about education for women is 
that women should be subjected to as rigorous an educa- 
tion in academic subject matter as men. Both women and 
men are persons first intellectually — then male and female. 

My main point is that women who are qualified and 
able should pursue a sound education just as vigorously as 
qualified men should do so. In a time when there are not 
enough qualified men to fill the requirements of our 
changing society, we are wasting our talented, educated 
women because too many of them surrender educational, 
vocational and professional objectives immediately upon 
falling in love. 

There is little in Salem's curriculum which caters to 
women as women. Rather, the offerings are directed at the 
minds of persons in a solid, substantial, liberal arts way. 

I am proud of the charm, the poise and the femininity 
of the Salem students, but I am most zealous for the educa- 
tion and enrichment of your minds. The only real point 
in educating you is to educate you to the limit of your 
ability. If you do not work for the best use of your mind, 
you are not working for the use of your mind at all. 

Meet Your New Officers 



Our vivacious Madame President has as hobbies gardening, cultivating 
English boxwoods, and traveling with husband Lyman. She has been or- 
ganist in Baptist and Presbyterian churches in Rocky Mount, and is a vice- 
regent of DAR, treasurer of Colonial Dames of the 17th Century, financial 
adviser to the Sub-Deb Club, and parliamentarian of the Woman's Club. 



Mrs. James B. Dunn has one son, James, Jr., 27. For three years she 
has been in charge of Salem clubs and areas. She has been regent of DAR 
Chapter, Delray Beach, Fla., and of the Palm Beach Daughters of America 
Colonists. She has held state offices in both of these.

Winston-Salem Alumnae Club. She has served on the Board of Salem's 
Friends of the Library, and on W-S Symphony Guild Board. She and hus- 
band, Earle, a psysicist with Bell Laboratories, have three young children, 
Steve, Laura and John. 

These Officers are Serving You . . Won't You 
serve Salem with your contribution? 



Our 3rd VP is in charge of our Constitution and By Laws revision. Her 
husband is a doctor in Durham. Her son Carl is a Presbyterian minister in 
McLean, Va., and daughter Doris is a Salem junior. Mary is a sustaining 
member of the Junior League and on the Boards of the N. C. Symphony 
and Halcyon Literary Club. 



Dr. Lane is assistant professor at UNC School of Education. She has 
served on the Board of Stewards of the University Methodist Church, and 
with PTA and Y-Teens. She is a member of Delta Kappa Gamma and Kappa 
Delta Pi. She is the mother of a daughter, Mary Ellen, a high school senior, 
and the widow of Thomas A. Lane. 


Treasurer and Chairman of the Alumnae Fund 

Page is on the Board of Directors of W-S Junior League and Chairman 
of its Adult Handicapped program, co-sponsored with the City Recreation 
Department. She is active in St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Dorcas circle, and 
PTA. Husband Fred Hill is with Reynolds Tobacco Company. Their four

Cox Shore, '41 and Elizabeth Jerome Holder, '35, Chairman of the Nomi- 
nating Committee, Sara Slawter Sugg, '48, and Director of Alumnae Affairs, 
Lelia Graham Marsh. 

We point 

with PRIDE to . . . 

Marion Norris Grabarek, '42, of Durham. 

Life has changed for the Grabarek family since May 18 
when Wense was elected Mayor of Durham. All of us 
feel the responsibility of this position but also enjoy social 
activities such as lunching with the Governor and his 
wife, meeting Jock ( "Tarzan" ) Mahoney, many delightful 
dinners and other official occasions. 

We feel that our time belongs to the citizens of Dur- 
ham, and frequently I can relieve the pressure on Wense 
by receiving and conveying messages. Other than keeping 
the social calendar straight, my chief usefulness is to serve 
as a sounding board for Wense's views. He wants me to 
add — for Salem readers — how very much he values a 
woman's opinion. 

Our children have accepted an attitude of civic aware- 
ness with the possible exception of David, the youngest. 
When his Daddy told him he would have to behave him- 
self especially now, David stated fervently, "I wish you 
had never run!" Understandably David is the obvious one 
in the picture. 

Wense has begun his term as mayor at a very serious 
and critical time in Durham's hiscory, and we pray God's 
guidance for him. 

Norwood Dennis Grinalds, '60, spent the first year 
of married life in England, while her husband, Lieut. John 
Grinalds of the U. S. Marines, a Rhodes Scholar, completed 
his degree at Brasenose College of Oxford University. The 
newlyweds kept house at "Manor Pierce," Combe, some 
miles from Oxford. British-American friendship was ce- 
mented by their wholehearted participation in Combe vil- 
lage life as well as in the scholarly contacts of Oxford. 
Flowers, fruits and vegetables were frequent gifts from the 
villagers, and Norwood and her neighbors exchanged 
recipes. Many a southern dish from Macon, Georgia, is 
now being served at a Combe table. 

Thanksgiving Day was celebrated by inviting the nine 
other U. S. lieutenants at Oxford to dinner and fun in the 
American tradition — which may have surprised the Combe 
residents. Norwood and John were often entertained at 
formal and informal University affairs by the masters and 
dons in the best British tradition. 

The Grinalds covered the British Isles in holiday travels, 
and their memories are filled with historical and literary 
associations of places and persons in England, Scotland and 
Wales. Their trips to the Continent were also extensive 
and rewarding. 

Now at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, they are hap- 
pily barrack-bound by a baby, who made parents of them

facilities and natural beauty, is just off the Blue Ridge 
Parkway near Laurel Springs, North Carolina. 

On a staff of 25, Mary Curtis Wrike Gramley's husband, 
'Digs ", served as manager. Curt enjoyed several weeks at 
Camp, before going to Graham for the birth of their 
second daughter, Dale Louise. Eleanor Fishel Johnson's 
husband, Burke, was assistant manager. One of his jobs 
was moving truckloads of beds from Clewell, given by 
Salem to the Camp, as Clewell Dorm now has new beds 
along with new floors and fresh paint. Burke helped in 
closing Camp and arrived home in time for the birth of 
their daughter. 

Margaret Siewers Turner's son Charles was on the 
maintenance squad. 

Anne Tesch was registrar and Margaret Higgins, daugh- 
ter of Josephine Cummings Higgins, directed crafts and 
camping aspects of the program. Sarah Vance Binkley, 
Margaret Persons and Faye McDuffie were among the 
counselors and instructors. 

THE SALEMITE, student weekly newspaper, received 
a first-class rating for the past two years from the As- 
sociated Collegiate Press at the University of Minnesota 
School of Journalism. 

SwANNANOA Brower Hadley of Mount Airy, N. C. 
is now in her 100th year, having been born May 21, 1864. 
She graduated at Salem in 1890 — older than her class- 
mates, as her education had been interrupted for health 
reasons. Her three daughters also hold Salem degrees: 
Sallie Hadley Yokley, '12 . . . Lucy Hadley Cash, '14 . . . 
"Jamie" Hadley Smith, '15. 

Mary Fries Blair, 1889 graduate and 1890 post grad- 
uate (one of eight to receive Salem's first B.A. degree), 
is thought to be the only living graduate of the class of 
1889. After a long illness, she celebrated her 90th birth- 
day on July 9, 1963 at her yearly birthday party.

Miracle on 73 th Street 

Marianne Everett, '46 

I was visiting in Woodstock, New York, when I first 
heard there was a need for more nursery schools in chat 
state. I decided to place a call to a friend who had Jived 
in New York City all her life, whose children had attended 
the city's private schools. My question was, "What is the 
need for more nursery schools in New York City?" She 
had a definite opinion. "Don't do it — we have been try- 
ing to start one for four years!" 

That was all I needed to know. There was a need, and 
I had the educational experience and degrees necessary to 
meet this need. But what were the particular problems 
that had made such a venture seem so impossible for four 
years? My friend told of the stringent regulations of the 
City Building and Health Departments and the high cost 
of meeting their requirements. As she recited the long 
list of problems and difficulties, I listened gratefully. She 
was telling me exactly where to begin. 

When I appeared in New York City a few days later, 
my friend was incredulous. "What makes you think you 
can start a nursery school here when prominent business 
men have not been able to do it?" I had three simple 
answers: years of experience in teaching, a Master's degree 
in Early Childhood Education, and, most important of all, 
faith. I said to myself and to others, "If it is right, there 
will be a way." 

The way did open step by step. There were indeed 
problems — everything from the City Building Depart- 
ment to the Electricians' Union. Every word my friend had 
uttered was true. In New York City, in order to have a 
place for children to play, one is required to install 
fluorescent lighting, air conditioning, and reinforced beams 
under the floor. Before one can think of these renovations, 
one must find thirty square feet of indoor space per child! 
In the past years I have learned as much about school 
architecture as I had learned previously about education. 

In the thick of the problems I learned a valuable lesson, 
one that has made the founding of the school an exciting 
personal adventure. I learned to look for the good, to go 
forward expecting good. This changed the focus from 
problems to solutions. Indeed, each day seemed to bring 
some solution to unravelling of a knotty problem. It was 
thrilling, and others caught the spark. One Sunday after- 
noon in cold, impersonal New York City, fifteen friends 
came to paint, saw and hammer. We had just a few days 
to get the school ready for the first children. 

The school opened in April of I960 with ten children. 
Eighteen months later, we had 125 children and a staff 
of twenty. New Yorkers had begun calling it "The Miracle 
on 75th Street." It all began in a garden apartment with 
extra-large rooms, in a building ideally located, with a 
landlord who wanted to get rid of the tenants upstairs! I 
guaranteed we could arrange this, and we might then take 
the additional space and expand the school. We did this 
our second year. The premises are now three times the 
original size. We have classrooms in two buildings and 
a long garden between them. We are negotiating the pur- 

chase of an adjoining building where we will locate the 
offices, an extensive library, meeting rooms, and new space 
for indoor dancing classes. 

All classes are small — 12 to 20 children — with two 
teachers in each class. Each group covers approximately 
six months in age span (i.e., young threes, older threes, 
etc. ) . Children whose date of birth prevents them from 
entering first grade are included in a more challenging 
program than the usual Kindergarten, a "Junior First 
Grade." The children come for a half-day only. Therefore, 
each class room is used twice daily. Teachers may instruct 
either half-day or full-time. 

The Everett School was the first private nursery school 
in New York City to have a salary commensurate with 
the top public school systems in the area. All our Head 
Teachers have specialized study and degrees in Early Child- 
hood Education, with at least five holding Master's degrees. 
Each year I conduct a special training course for Appren- 
tice Teachers. 

The success of the school can be attributed to the 
quality of its education. During the first year The Everett 
School was placed at the top of the list of Nursery-Kin- 
dergarten Schools recommended by many of New York's 
leading private schools. The help and support of established 
educators in the city has been invaluable. Our best adver- 
tisements have been pleased parents of pre-schoolers. They 
often say they see in their children the results of the kind 
of education for which we stand, and they become en- 
thusiastic supporters of the school in the community. 

Marianne Everett, '46, Founder and Director of The Everett 
School in New York City. 

I have definite convictions about the importance of 
Early Childhood Education. Fathers who visit the school 
ask, "Do they just play — or do you teach them some- 
thing?" The answer is "YES, they play, and YES, we 
teach them something." We are using some Montessori- 
derived materials and other materials from France and 
England for developing number concepts and early read- 
ing and writing. Where pre-schoolers are involved, such 
learning must always be done in an atmosphere of play 
and with very careful attention to the individual child's 
interest and readiness. Our school is offering research fel- 
lowships to a local university so that we may learn more 
about the intellectual development of very young children. 
This is one of the primary interests of educators today. I 
feel we must build all such new knowledge on the founda- 
tion of sound "learning through play" methods seen in good 
nursery schools of the past, combining the best of the 
old and the best of the new. 

It is particularly important for children who live in 
the city to have good nursery-kindergarten experience. 
The confines of a city apartment and park do not always 
provide the combination of freedom and guidance, friends 
and play equipment so needed by young children. The 
school seeks to meet this need in New York City. It pro- 
vides an environment where the young child learns to 
feel safe and unafraid, to take responsibility, to consider 
the rights of others. The child develops confidence from 
learning new skills and from increasing his knowledge 
of the real world around him. 

This type of learning takes place only under the guid- 
ance of specially trained teachers. Our teachers carefully 
plan their program to include experiences in art, literature, 
music (singing and dancing), social studies and dramatic 
play. The classes, even three year olds, are taken on many 
field trips into the community. Last year these included 
New York harbor and a heliport. Our gardens are filled 
with play equipment for large-muscle development which 
gives a young child confidence. 

Our extensive readiness program includes the newest 
methods in building teaching number concepts, pint-sized 
science experiments, and reading readiness according to 
the ability of the individual child. Future learning has its 
foundations in the formative years from three to five. 

We select our pupils carefully trying to keep a balance 
of background. Each year we give several thousand dollars 
worth of scholarships. To provide these and to support 
our research projects and in-service training of Appren- 
tice Teachers, parents have established "The Friends of 
The Everett School." Through funds donated we have 
been able to have in the school children from other coun- 
tries and cultures. In the first three years, we have had 
forty children from France, Italy, Hungary, England, Leba- 
non, Russia, Greece, China, Japan, Switzerland and coun- 
tries of South America. Among our Apprentice Teachers 
have been girls from Holland, Iran, Turkey and Switzer- 
land. Next year we will have two fully certified Head 
Teachers from England. 

In order to foimd the school soundly, we have sought 
the cooperation of the New York State authorities. The 
Everett School is now chartered by the Board of Regents 
of the University of the State of New York, We have an 
Advisory Board of prominent New Yorkers, most of whom 
are parents of children in the School. Their wise counsel 

and assistance has been exceedingly helpful. Without the 
support and advice of countless individuals the School 
would never have come into being. My gratitude to them 
all is unbounded. If only they could see the happy faces 
of the 315 children who have benefited from this new 
nursery-kindergarten school in its first three years!

25th Reunion -- Class of '38 

{Florence Joyner Boiven, president, — speaker on Alumnae Day, June 1, 1963) 

Remembering the nautical theme of our 1938 annual as we were launched upon the sea of life, I searched for an 
appropriate sea poem to use today. "Sea Fever." I thought — No, Masefield has the sailor running away from reunions. 
Well then, Tennyson's "Crossing the Bar" — Horrors! Not "Twilight and Evening Bell" at our twenty-fifth! Coleridge's 
"Rime of the Ancient Mariner" — "Ancient" — that would never do. I must seek a younger poet. So I turned to my 
creative writing files and found a poem composed by "Chuck," a seventh grade pupil, which I dedicate to this reunion 
of the Class of 1938. 

Gift From the Sea 

The sea is an endless conveying machine, 

It brings up shells of aquamarine. 

A shell is thrown upon the sand, 

And picked up by a little hand. 

A driftwood splinter floats along, 
A crab scuttles by, doing no wrong. 
When I for a good tim-e go to the sea, 
I always bring hack a memory. 

Since Salem preceded our 25 years of sailing, many of our memories are anchored to this peaceful shore. We were 
a class of 56 graduates who were sobered by the depression, scattered by a world war, separated from husbands and loved 
ones, and then expected to return and rebuild. Even today our addresses are in 15 states and we have a hard time feeling 
united. Two boys, now men of distinction, received Salem degrees with us; Dr. Frank Carter Campbell, Musicologist 
in New York, and William Wyatt, a headmaster at 'Virginia Episcopal School for Boys in Lynchburg. 

There will be driftwood splinters of memory floating back all day: the silver tone of the bell, the flower in Dr. 
Rondthaler's buttonhole, Mrs. Rondthaler's "Now, Girls!", the creaking stairs to the old library, our lavender-and-white 
gym suits. Dr. Anscombe's broken stick story, and the May Pole dance in the Dell. We will recall our faculty: Miss 
Lawrence, Dr. Wenhold, Dean 'Vardell, Dr. Smith, Dr. Downs, Mr, Higgins, Miss Stockton, Mrs. Meinung, Miss Best, 
Mrs. Swedenberg; and we will see Mr. Campbell, to whom our annual was dedicated. We will remember 'Virginia Lee 
Cowper's beauty as May Queen. Memories of our own graduation day will swirl around us as we leave Memorial Hall. 

Another Salem girl, my grandmother for whom I am named, summed it up many years before I was born. At the 
end of her stay at Salem Academy in the years 1871-1875, she wrote in her diary: 

"Everyone left around noon, some of the girls laughing, some crying, knowing that the Salem part of their 
lives was over. I was standing in an empty hall by a window, I was crying and a teacher asked: "What's the 
matter, Floy?' I said, 'Vm leaving for good, and 1 have been so happy here.' " 

That Salem girl carried away more than a memory. She carried away a way of life; and so did we, Salem girls, so 
did we!

was a tradition that as we came near to 
Conference, Dore would drive through the 
country on a collection trip. She called on 
everybody and always returned with the 
funds to 'pay out in full'. Through the

have blessed it. It is my joy to preach to

Sallie Hadley Yokley devotes much time 
to her 99-year-old mother, who lives next 
door in Mount Airy. 

Mildred Harris Fuller is busy in Oxford 
and happy to have four grandchildren in 
nearby Fayetteville, while her son. Col. 
Fuller, was abroad. 

Anne Sorsby is the most active person 
I know! In April she and a friend spent 
a day with us in Southern Pines. We vis-

where your Correspondent still finds de- 
light in living.

Reunion — May 30, 1964 

President Pattie Wray Fetzer says: "This 
is a reminder that 1964 is our 50th Re- 
union. Plans are being made and we will 
write to each of you in detail. Plan to 

Ruth Credle, after teaching 20 years 
in Portsmouth, Va., retired in 1962, but 
did another year of substitute teaching 
there. Now she and her bachelor brother 
are restoring the home place in Pantego. 
(Address: Box 7, Pantego, N. C.) 

May Norman is still in her old home 
at 614 Spring St., W-S. She says: "Since 
retirement I have enjoyed being with my 
family. The library is near, so I do a great 
deal of reading and some sewing, but best 
of all, I baby-sit with my great-nephew 
and his two sisters." 

Ethel Reich enjoyed Europe in May- 
June. She sailed on the Queen Mary. 

The death of Sudie Self Batting on May 
1st is a great loss to us. Sudie was always 
a loyal and interested member, and had 
been a class officer for the past nine years. 
She served as Correspondent from 1954- 
59, and was elected Secretary at our last 
Reunion. Her passing, after a long illness, 
was a blessed release for her, but we shall 
miss her sadly. 

We learn with sorrow of the death of 
Julia Crawford Steckel on Sept. 16. A trib- 
ute to Julia will appear later. 

In June Anna sent to the absentees a 
Newsletter on the 15 at Salem at our 
50th Reunion. When in Florida in July, 
I called on Mattie Wilby Pope in her 
Lakeland home. 

Since those at Reunion "saw no reason 
for electing officers" there is no "official 
Class President" name on file. 

I shall be happy to fill this column

Charlotte Boy's Choir. 

Katherine Graham Howard attended 
the 50th Anniversary of her Salem Acad-

Starr was the director. 

Betsy Bailey Fames visited Salem in May 
as the guest of Lelia Graham Marsh and 
Wake Forest, where she visited Mrs. Phil-

charming home. 

Carrie Sherrod Wood wrote of the Tune

Memories of 45th Reunion stay with 
the eight of us who made it — Evelyn Al- 
len, Sue Campbell, Katherine Davis, Lu- 
cille Henning, Carmel Rothrock (who 
flew back from Florida), Olive Thomas, 
Henrietta Wilson and Marie Crist. We 
glimpsed Mary Cash as she was rushing 
from one duty to another. 

Letters explaining why others could not 
come, were appreciated : 

Edith Bryson on vacation in Ohio with 
her daughter. . . Helen Long, unable to 
come from Mass., as she had been South 
three months last winter . . . Mary Feim- 
ster, kept by school still in session, sent 
pictures of her family which were enjoy- 
ed .. . Eula Dell Wall kept away by ear- 
lier commitments . . . Eleanor Gates' duties 
as director of the Helen Hill School claim- 
ed her in Tampa, also her invalid mother 
. . . Lois Spotts was getting grandchil- 
dren off to camp. . Mary Entwistle's greet- 
ings were appreciated . . . Belle Lewtet could 
not come from Detroit as she had been 
South earlier because of a sister's illness. 

Our sympathy to Carmel in her brother 
John's death. . . and to Olive, who lost 
her father recently. 

Officers elected were: President-Corre- 
spondent and Historian, Marie Crist Black- 
wood. . . Vice President, Carmel Rothrock 
Hunter. . . Fund Agent and Sec.-Treas.,

She will make her home in Morganton. . . 
The Hackneys and Doris flew to Boston 
in Sept., and drove to Maine in a Hertz 
car, to see the Fall in New England.

Ten of us enjoyed being together for 
35th Reunion at Salem in June. 

Only six could be with Helen Bagby 
Hine in her lovely new home for the 
bountiful buffet and the evening of remi- 
niscing. We recalled many incidents and 
laughed over our happy days at Salem. 
We were sorry more of you weren't with 

Doris Walston Thompson of Plymouth 
was elected our new president. Doris was 
at Lake Junaluska this summer in connec- 
tion with her district work in the Meth- 
odist Church. Recently she and Leland 
have been in New York on a business and 
pleasure trip. Their daughter Dottie is 
with the Winston-Salem Social Security 

Ilah Albert Vance and Helen Bagby 
Hine are our Fund agents and Correspon- 
dents. Send them news items to report in 
each issue of "The Record." Ilah's daugh- 
ter Sallie is commuting to Guilford and 
her daughter "Ginny" continues piano and 
organ at Salem. This summer she was or- 
ganist for Konnoak Hills Moravian 
Church. Helen's daughter Patsy with her 
husband and baby, were visiting her, so 
we met them and her friendly husband, 
Charlie. After two years teaching in the 
U. S. Army School in Germany, her daugh- 
ter Natalie is at home teaching in W-S. 

Sarah Turlington came from Mooresville 
where she was vacationing with her fa- 
ther. Now in his eighties. Mr. Turlington 
remains active in law practice and in com- 
munity and church affairs. Sarah enjoys 
her work in the personnel division of the 
Atomic Energy Commission. Sue Lucken- 
bach Middleton stayed with her while at- 
tending the National D. A. R. Meeting 
recently. Sue's son Whit is a Lieut, in the 
Navy. Her son Owen, majoring in music 
at the University of Florida, has won an 
original composition award.

"cum laude" daughter, Dean. Dean and 
husband are resident counselors in the 
Winston-Salem Juvenile Detention Home. 
She is teaching while he is completing his 
studies. Sarah continues piano teaching and 
gave Dean a piano as a graduation gift. 

Both of Hope Johnson Barkley's chil- 
dren are married; her son is with the 
Wachovia Bank; her daughter has one son 
and lives in Asheboro. 

Salem is indebted to Evelyn Davis Dunn 
for her labor and travels with area meet- 
ings of the Alumnae Association. 

Peg Brookes Kerr is a neighbor of Helen 
Hine and Cordelia Shaner Bagnal lives 
close to them. Cordelia's illness prevented 
her being at reunion and we missed her. 
Peg's older daughter recently graduated 
from Cone Hospital in Greensboro and 

continues working there. She and her little 
girl spend frequent week-ends at home. 
Peg's second daughter is a teen-ager, so 
there is never a dull moment at the Kerr's. 

Annie Graham Caldwell joined us at 
Helen's in the evening. She is greatly be- 
loved in the R. J. Reynolds High School 
where she has been librarian and at pres- 
ent is teaching History. The one who came 
the greatest distance was Laverne Waters 
Fulton, who leads an interesting life in 
Morgantown, W. 'Va. Her husband is a 
professor of social work in the graduate 
school of West 'Virginia University. Last 
year Laverne and Tom together received 
the West Virginia Welfare Conference 
Merit Award for "unselfish and compe- 
tent leadership in educational, civic and 
welfare activities." We hope to hear more 
of Laverne's interests and achievements. 
We enjoyed this first visit with her since 
our .graduation day in '28 and are proud 
of the worthwhile things she is doing. 
Emma Parrish Burns had planned to be 
with us, but out-of-town guests prevented. 
Julia Bullock Holland had also expected 
to join us. 

There were letters from many who could 
not come: 

Eliza Grimes Wahman's daughter Alice 
is an elementary teacher; June, the younger 
girl, is a law student at Chapel Hill. Eliza 
spent last year at the University studying 
Library Science, finishing her course in 
summer school. Eliza said Agnes Thorne 
MacRae was in Europe visiting her first 

Teachers Tish Currie and Gretchen 
Schwarze were kept by school programs 
from being present. Gretchen is looking 
forward to fiftieth reunion and promises 
to be on hand. She flew to Albuquerque, 
New Mexico, for a visit this summer. 

Lucille McGowan Hall's daughter had 

completed her first year at Salem and was 

in the midst of debutante parties, so Lu- 
cille was not able to get back. 

Virginia Cooper Kirkland is librarian 
at Cushman School, Miami's oldest private 
school. When she wrote, her twin sons, 
Lawrence and Edward, had finished their 
first patrol on the nuclear-powered sub- 
marine "Sam Houston," based at Holy 
Lock, Scotland. 

Peggy Parker Ertel was in Black Moun- 
tain helping her father celebrate his birth-

oldest son John is working on his Master's 
at George Washington and Bill is at Wake 

Estelle Lawson Page, an outstanding 
golfer, was elected one of the first five, 
and the only woman, to the North Car- 
olina Sports Hall of Fame. 

Hesta Kitchen Crawford's daughter is

From Alaska Pearl Martin Moyer wrote: 
"While you are meeting, Fll be teaching 
a roomfull of adorable but 'wiggly' first 
graders. My son married a girl from Texas 
last fall and I am happy to have them in 


Palmer. My husband died in 1962." 

As I "sign off" as class president, our 
son Richard begins his first year in Mora- 
vian Theological Seminary; his wife Emily 
is teaching in the Allentown High School, 
and Bobby is a day student at High Point 

Let's keep items coming in to ptesident, 
Doris Walston Thompson or to our class 
representatives, Helen Bagby Hine or Ilah 
Albert Vance and our gifts to the Alumnae 
Fund direct to Salem. We'd like to hear 
from all who didn't "report" at reunion

Katie Thorp Ballard's letter is printed, 
as attendance at June reunion was so slim: 

"Dear Classmates: May I take off my 
bifocals and look back to our graduation 
day? We were full of vigor and ready for 
fun, despite the depression! I hope that 
life has been both gay and useful — with 
more ups than downs — and with many 
blessings to count. 

"I've missed you through these 30 years 
and often been comforted by the things 
we learned together — agreeing and dis- 
agreeing with one another! I send love and 
wish for you the ability to balance evenly 
on the razor edge of life and live it to 
the utmost."

Katherine Sissell Glennon (M.A. Co-

"John is principal of a junior and 
elementary school, enrollment 1900. We 
have four children: Mary Ellen, 14, John, 
12, and twins, Kathy and Kevin, 10. They 
keep us busy as they have crowds here 

My activities include being a director of 
the Conn. Opera Guild, chairman of 

Patients' Library of Women's Auxiliary of 
St. Francis Hospital, president of the Fly- 
in.g Yankee ^5C'ives Club, on executive 
boards of Women's Assn. for the Univ. 
of Hartford, an AAUW, on executive com- 
mittee of Mental Health Assn. and the 
Community Council of Greater Hartford. 
I was co-leader of Brownies and Secretary 
of a Cub Pack. Have served on the board 
of the Women's Club of St. Thomas, the 
Apostle; am active in League of Women 
Voters, and was district chairman for Red 
Cross and Mothers' March. 

It's fun knowing and partying with 
people one reads about in the news, as 
many of them are Hartford citizens. Demo- 
cratic Chairman John Baily lives near us. 
Senator Dodd lived up the street; Sen. 
Ribicoff is in town often for social func- 
tions; we go to dinner parties for the 
lohn Lodges, and Mrs. Chester Bowles has 
been here for cocktails. I never knew people 
like that back home in Winston! The near- 
est I came to a politician was Mr. Sam 
Welfare, who was a state representative 
for a term. Remember his drug store? 

I would love to see the .gals of '37, who 
looked wonderful in the BULLETIN pic- 
ture. Maybe I'll see you at our 30th re- 
union in 1967! Doesn't that sound awful? 
Let's keep young in heart, however." 

Helen Jones Thompson was in Roanoke 
in June and we enjoyed lunchin.g together. 
Her husband, Mel, president of a Savings 
and Loan Co. in Fayetteville, N. C, came 
for a convention. He is such a nice person. 
Helen and I had not seen each other since 
1937, so there was much to catch up on. 

Our son Michael finished at Oak Ridge 
Military Institute in June. 

What has happened to everybody? Not 
a line from a soul and I am discouraged. 
Many cards I've sent out this past year, 
but few responses . . . Can't I depend on 
at least five to send news before next 
deadline — January first?

"Corinne Pate McLaurin's mother died 
in March at her sister's funeral. Corinne's 
son, Mac, entered NC State this fall. 

Arnice Topp Fulton's eldest girl entered 
Dou,glass College of Rutgers Univ. Her 
son John is a junior at Lehigh. 

Joe and I interrupted vacation in N. J. 
to attend the wedding of a nephew in 
Phila. In August we entertained 16-year 
old twins (niece and nephew) and a 10- 
year old nephew while their parents were 
in Europe. Grandmother helped too, or 
I wouldn't have survived. When you have 
none of your own and suddenly three — 
it's quite a shock. 

Helen Diehl Barnes' daughter Anne mar-

Florence spoke charmingly for the class, 
when recognized by the Alumnae Associa-

Meredith Holderby Harrell regretted 
missing reunion, which coincided with a 
Carribean trip and Dick's 25th at V.M.I. 
She describes her family as "three genera-

senior and co-captain of football, hopes to 
enter the Air Force Academy in 1964 . . .

Lib Huband Leonard is settled in Lex- 
ington after many moves, as her husband 
is in construcrion business. Their girl is 
16, and boy, 14.

most traveled among us. Her husband won 
five trips recently — to Paris, Nassau, the

Well, Girls, you thought I wasn't gonna 
make it, eh.' Missed a deadline, but with 
a publisher, do you think I'd miss such 
an opportunity.'' 

Such witty material from Rosalind 
Clark: "I'm still an interior decorating 
teacher at Atlanta Art School. I'm sort of 
an artist — but not serious, as I laugh at 
my efforts. Occasionally I'm a witch at 
children's parties. I sleep late, weigh 2 
tons, my hair is almost to my knees, and 
I'm studying astrology. I've found a de- 
licious recipe for homemade wine — so 
a home ec major wasn't a complete loss." 

Effie Ruth Maxwell Pike: "I've been 
trying to figure something interesting to 
write, but I have to face the fact — my 
life is interesting to no one except me! 
It's just trying to hold the home front 
while skittering around rhe edge of church, 
PTA, book, garden and bridge clubs — 
with five children's grins and husband's 
kind words to keep me on the track." 

We have been busy girls in the past 
17 years. For example: 

Wink Wall Cottam has served as presi- 
dent of High Point Junior League besides 
rearing two boys. Bob, 9, and Dick, 4. She 
told of taking them to the Candle Tea in 
Brothers' House and to Children's Love- 
feast on Christmas Eve at Home Moravian 
Church. (I could taste the sugarbread and 
smell the beeswax candles! ) 

From the looks of Greta Garth Gray's 
Christmas card she is busy chasing her 
three up into a tree-house. Her home is 
lovely, full of Salem paintings and Greta's 
friendliness. What do you hear from 
"Luke" Douthit, Greta? 

Catherine Bunn McDowell's letter from 
Long Island has news of others besides 
her daughter, 4, and son, 2. And best of 
all, she's still singing. She had seen Mary 
Holt Maxwell, x'48, of Armonk, N. Y., 
who has five children, works in Little 
Theatre, and looks great . . . and sees 
Betsy Thomas Stuart and children, Mary 
Beth and Tommy. Betsy enjoys church 
work and traveling with husband Hal. 

We have many children to report: 

Betsy Casteen Wright has six in Leaks- 
ville; her twins are in 10th grade. Betsy 
has visited Martha Moore Hayes Voisin, 
who has a son, 13, and daughter, 11, and 
lives in Jamaica Plain, Mass, Martha loves 
teaching piano. Betsy says that Mac Mc- 
Lendon Westfall lives in Arizona with 
doctor-husband and six children, who en- 
joy horseback riding and camping. 

Peggy Witherington Hester — as well 
as I — have four children. Her husband 
is a dentist in High Point. I saw them at 
Montreat this summer. 

Marjorie Conrad Martin of Shaker 
Heights, Ohio, is a part-time hospital dieti- 
tian and teaches interns. She has two boys 
and two girls . . . Mary Farmer Brantley 
Draper took up water skiing with her four 

at Wrightsville Beach. "We are enjoying 
our 30's and looking forward to the 40's."

looks like a model. After class meeting, 
some of us visited Shirley Redlack Hill 
and her twin sons and Kay Hannan Paul

Excitement and Urgency On Campus 


There is an urgency, there is an excitement in the air 
at Salem at mid-year 1963-64. It is a sort of let's-get-on- 
the-march-and-move-ahead attitude. 

The spirit I detect penetrates all aspects of college pro- 
gram: curricular improvements, advanced graduate study 
by faculty, new teaching aids, greater cooperation with 
other colleges, improved standards of admission and of 
classroom performance, new construction, and plans for 
still other construction. 

Some of these advances have been sparked by two fairly 
recent selfstudy programs: (1) the one required by the 
Southern Association in I960 and (2) the one completed 
(October 1963) in teacher education, as required by the 
State of North Carolina. Much committee work by mem- 
bers of the faculty and administration has been required 
for these studies. This has been good. Somehow, subtly, 
it has confirmed our feeling that Salem is doing a sound 
educational job. But, at the same time, it has urged us to 
want to do a still better job. 

Organization in 1963 of the Piedmont University 
Center, with headquarters in Winston-Salem, has brought 
our faculty into closer relationship with faculty of 15 
other colleges in this area. It has also brought direct bene- 
fits to Salem in library matters, in a concern for faculty 
research, in the scheduling of visiting lecturers and schol- 
ars, and in other areas, including closer cooperation by 
deans of the member institutions in promoting educa- 
tional advance. 

Meanwhile a sense of accomplishment through Salem's 
20th Decade Fund, whereby the first priority project, 
construction of the auditorium-fine arts center, is under 
way, has urged the Administration and the Board of Trus- 
tees to look hopefully towards moving into the second 
project, construction of an additional dormitory. Plan- 
ning of the dormitory has been authorized. 

Ground was broken in mid-December for the audito- 
rium-fine arts building north of the May Dell. The build- 
ing is to be completed by April 1965. Total cost, includ- 
ing two new pipe organs, furnishings and equipment, as 
well as landscaped parking areas for 240 cars is expected 
to approximate $1,700,000, all of which has now been 
subscribed through the 20th Decade Fund. 

With this project financially guaranteed, steps are be- 
ing taken to seek the Trustees' approval on the start of 
construction late this spring of a dormitory for about 
86 students. If sufficient gifts are not forthcoming, the 
idea would be to borrow money to build and equip the 
dormitory. Since it would be a revenue-producing build- 
ing, an amortization schedule for reduction of the debt 
could be worked out from the additional income provided 
by the additional students. 

The proposed dormitory, which would bring resident 
enrollment to about 500, is important to Salem primarily 
because it would support the addition of seven or eight 
faculty members. It would also enable the College to help 
care for the growing number of young women seeking an 
education. It would mean doubling of Salem's service to 
society in the decade, 1955-56 to 1965-66. 

If the dormitory project is undertaken, it is expected 
that the building would be completed in the summer of 
1965. Then, for the 1965-66 year. South Hall would be 
closed and the addition of 86 students would be spread 
over a two-year period. This would be done so as not to 
create too great an imbalance in the student body by ad- 
mitting too large a Freshman Class in any one year. 

While South Hall is closed for one year, friends of Old 
Salem and the College may decide they would like to 
finance the restoration of this building, which was the 
first constructed solely for school purposes (1804). Only 
the exterior would be restored to the original appearance. 
The interior would be made into a fire-proof, modern 

The community-wide observance of the 200th anniver- 
sary of the founding of Salem (Winston-Salem) in 1966 
makes the South Hall restoration by that year a desirable 
project. From the College's viewpoint, the restoration is 
important because it will result in replacement of sub- 
standard facilities by first-class dormitory accommodations, 
and in separation of South from Sisters' House and Main 
Hall. This will decrease the fire hazard that now stands 
as a constant threat to these linked-together historic build- 

So far as the 200th anniversary and the Old Salem 
restoration program are concerned, two vitally important 

advances center at the College: (1) restoration of South 
Hall, and ( 2 ) removal of Memorial Hall. Both can be 
accomplished by 1966. 

It is easy to visualize physical improvements and 
changes in a college, still easier for alumnae to notice 
them upon return to campus. But what about the other 
changes hinted at earlier: curriculum improvements, ad- 
vanced study by faculty, new teaching aids, etc.? 

I don't recall any semester since I have been at Salem 
when so many curriculum changes have been studied, 
recommended and voted as has been the case during the 
first semester of this academic year. Involved have been 
strengthening of the curricula in biology, chemistry, math- 
ematics, home economics, religion-philosophy, education- 
psychology, economics, physical education. In all cases, the 
thought and study involved originated earlier and may 
have been germinating for as long as two years or more. 
They merely came to a head at this time. 

Since Salem adopted its sabbatical and doctoral com- 
pletion leave programs three years ago, seven faculty mem- 
bers have taken advantage of opportunities extended for 
advanced study, research or writing. Two others are ex- 
pected to apply for leaves in 1964-65 to work on doctor- 
ates and two additional faculty members are expected to 
receive their Ph.D degrees this year. 

As to new teaching aids, the most spectacular adoption 
this year was special films for instruction in first-and sec- 
ond-year French. In the second semester, similar films will 
be used in Spanish instruction. The films have been pro- 
duced by Encyclopedia Brittanica and stress the spoken 
language. In association with the language laboratory in- 
stalled two years ago, the films enrich greatly the college's 
program in modern languages. 

Other educational interests are being advanced: im- 
proved assembly programs, with three Rondthaler lec- 
turers scheduled for the second semester; a three-day 
symposium in April on "Communication in the Arts in 
the 20th Century," a dinner by department heads for 
Salem Scholars and members of the Honor Society; con- 
tinued faculty and music recitals; almost continuous dis- 
plays of student art; and constant insistence upon high 
standards by faculty in all departments. 

The total effort centers in the belief of the faculty 
that women students can achieve academic excellence, 
that Salem's students are in college for something more 
than to pass the time betwen adolescence and marriage. 

Meanwhile, standards for admission remain among the 
highest in the State. The high quality of entering stu- 
dents each year makes possible the advances that are tak- 
ing place. 

Despite the trend toward community colleges, despite 
the National Education Association's suggestion that two 
years of college education be provided free to all young 
Americans, and despite the recent prediction that the 
liberal arts college may pass from the scene in the next 
ten years, we at Salem are not alarmed. Somehow we have 
greater faith than ever in what we are doing and where 
we are headed. 'We are excited about the future. 'We 
think there will always be a Salem! 

Dean Hixson's Newest Honor 

Dean Hixson was elected president of the North Caro- 
lina College Conference in November. She is the second 
woman and the fourth person other than a college presi- 
dent to hold this top office since 1921, when the Con- 
ference was organized. 

The late Dr. Howard Rondthaler was one of the or- 
ganizers and served as president in 1922-23. Dean Hixson 
is the second Salem administrator to be president. Fifty- 
eight North Carolina colleges are members of the Con- 

Continuing Generations 

In the four classes in the 1963-64 session, 7.25 per 
cent of the 500 enrollment have alumnae antecedents. 
Sixty-nine students have a total of eighty-three close rela- 
tives who preceded them at Salem. These represent forty 
mothers, fifteen grandmothers, eleven great-grandmothers, 
three great-great-grandmothers, and fourteen sisters. 

Also in the student body are four pairs of sisters, which 
include two sets of twins. These are Catherine and Dorothy 
Davis (daughters of Dorothy Thompson Davis, '31), Bev- 
erly and Martha Paisley, Barbara Ann and Nancy Lee 
Gardner, twins, and Sandra and Sheila Smith, twins. 

News of Former Faculty 

Mrs. Elizabeth Lilly Swedenberg and daughter visited 
Miss Byrd at Easter, 1963. They spent a year in Wash- 
ington, where Dr. Swedenberg did research at the Folger 
Library when on leave for UCLA. 

Mrs. Elizabeth Reigner Stevens, mother of a daughter 
and son, is teaching freshman English at 'Whitman Col- 
lege. Her husband, Mr. 'Willis Stevens, has his Ph.D in 
music from Eastman. He made his New York debut in 
a Town Hall concert this February. 

Miss Catherine Nicholson, head of drama at Randolph- 
Macon, is on leave this year and spending the spring in 

Arts Symposium -- April 16-18 

A three-day Symposium in April centering in art, music 
and drama is creating keen interest as faculty and student 
committees complete program details. 

"Communication Through The Arts" is the topic, and 
classes will be suspended so that the entire college com- 
munity may participate in the stimulating events planned. 
These include four visiting speakers, an art exhibit, a 
theatrical production, a music program, and a number of 
discussions hours. 

Dr. Inzer Byers, Chairman, anticipates that "Communi- 
cation Through The Arts" will evoke much talk and 
thought on campus. 

Whafs New in the English Department? 


"What's new in the English Department?" The answei 
in print was requested by the editor of your BULLETIN. 
Some of the courses, some of the faculty who teach these 
courses, some of the methods in teaching may be new to 
many of you. But the purposes, the values we strive to 
achieve are not new; the attempt to teach students, through 
reading and writing, sound principles of thinking; to 
know something of their cultural history; to understand 
themselves better; and to appreciate literature as an art. 
Though we succeed only partially in these purposes, we 
feel the results on the whole are gratifying. 

The department continues to be one of the largest in 
the college. The reasons for this lie in part in the fact 
that two years of English are required for all degrees, ex- 
cept for the bachelor of music degree; that most students 
have a natural interest in literature; that the abilities de- 
veloped have a wide application in many fields, whether 
in a career, in marriage, or in both. Other reasons lie in 
the diversified courses and in a strong and versatile 

Nineteen courses beyond the sophomore level are offered 
— in oral and written composition, in drama, in American 
and English literature. These include surveys, period cour- 
ses, and courses in individual writers. 

Many of these courses, in Chaucer, Shakespeare and Mil- 
ton, which were popular under the strong teaching of Dr. 
Pearl Willoughby, are still offered but with some changes. 
For example, the course in Milton has been reduced to 
one semester. Courses added during the 1940's include 
the Restoration and Eighteenth Century, the history of 
English drama, and the Romantic Era. A course in Ren- 
aissance literature was added in the 1950's after a curri- 
culum study was made by the department. Gifted teach- 
ers, other than Dr. Willoughby, who made these and other 
courses popular in the past were Elizabeth Lilly Sweden- 
berg, Catherine Nicholson, and Betty Reigner Stevens. 

The offering of this diversity of courses is made possi- 
ble by the excellent collection of books in the field of 
English in the Library. The collection, strengthened by 
using the income from a bequest Dr. Willoughby made 
to the Library, has been praised by all visiting critics 
assigned to appraise the college. The English faculty con- 
stantly works to add to and maintain the quality in the 
selection of books. In recent years an extensive collection 
of records of poetry and plays has been added. 

The department also strives to maintain and improve 
the quality of its teaching. Its members are diverse in 
age, background and interests. Dr. William B. White 
(B.A., Hampton-Sydney, Ph.D. Lehigh University), a 
Virginian, came to Salem in 1956. He is a quiet, friendly 

teacher who follows a sound classical approach in teaching 
some of his favorite courses in Chaucer and the English 
Novel. Dr. Stephen Paine (B.A. Amherst, PhD Duke 
University ) , a native of New York, joined the department 
in 1957. He is a follower of the new criticism and excels 
in the analytical approach to basic courses and to American 
Literature. Mr. James Jordan, another Virginian who came 
to Salem in 1959, expects to receive his Ph.D from the 
University of Virginia in 1964. He is an enthusiastic and 
challenging teacher of basic courses and those in American 
Literature and the novel. As you can imagine, the girls 
enjoy having three young men teachers. 

Miss Barbara Battle (B.A. Agnes Scott, M.A. University 
of North Carolina), originally from Florida, who joined 
the department in 1958, is vigorous and forceful in teach- 
ing and in her dramatic productions. She is enthusiastic 
about what's new in religious drama and the theater of 
the absurd. 

In recent years one or more members of the department 
has been on leave of absence every year for advanced 
study. The problem of replacements for those on leave 
has been greatly reduced by the cooperation of Wake 
Forest College. 

The increased size of the student body since the Mary 
Reynolds Babcock Dormitory opened in 1957 and the 
improved quality of preparation for freshmen entering 
college have necessitated some changes. One was made 
last year in the institution of a new curriculum for fresh- 
man English. The scope and complexity of the material 
to be read was increased in the hope of offering a greater 
challenge to students in thinking and therefore in writing. 
The practice of selecting one advanced section from the 
freshman class has been continued. Honors work in the 
senior year for individual students, which was established 
two years ago, will probably be expanded to include other 

Now that the increased size of the student body has 
resulted in larger junior and senior classes, we are plan- 
ning to give many of the advanced courses every year in- 
stead of every other year. We are now offering annually 
the tragedies of Shakespeare and American literature. In 
the next few years we expect to add others to this list. 

The increase in English majors — seventeen last year — 
and the demand for the advanced courses by other students 
in the college have necessitated the limitation of the cour- 
ses to the number of twenty-five. Many students who 
desire the courses cannot be admitted. I must confess to 
nostalgia for the days of ten selected students, as, for 
example, in my class in the Eighteenth Century in 1960-

A Century Oj 

at Salem . . . 



Emma Augusta Lehman of Bethania entered Salem 
Academy in 1854 at the age of thirteen and left in 1857, 
having completed the course of study then required at the 
Academy. For the next seven years she taught in the 
country schools of Bethania and Pilot Mountain. 

In 1864, at the age of twenty-three, she began a teach- 
ing career at Salem which covered a span of fifty years. 
Even after retirement from the classroom in 1915, she con- 
tinued to live in Sisters' House and to exert the influence 
of a revered scholar-in-residence until her death in No- 
vember, 1922 at the age of eighty-one. For over a half 
century Miss Lehman and English were synonymous at 

Her tall, slender figure, piercing dark eyes and short 
curly hair (an unusual style then) are remembered still 
by some alumnae, as well as the thoroughness of her 
teaching and the impact of her poetic mind. Though 
English was her professional subject, she delighted in 
other widely differing fields. Natural sciences, particularly 
botany, absorbed her interest. Her discovery of an un- 
identified variety of plant was named "Monotropsis Lehm- 
ani " in her honor. 

To Salem students Miss Lehman was an exceptional 
teacher. Her funeral Memoir characterized her as "always 
occupied, always well informed, always open hearted and 
receptive; a distinctive personality which conveyed the 
impression of reserve strength, refinement and Christian 
character. Her discipline was instinctive and firm, a sort 
of personal discipline which students recognized and 

The Lehman Chair of Literature was started in 1909 
by the seniors of that year. Its present value is $20,500. 
Gifts to this endowment are added yearly from alumnae 
who continue to honor the memory of this remarkable 

Ernest L. Starr, who followed Miss Lehman, was 
one of the first and few "young men" on the faculty. 
This fact stirred the emotions as well as the minds of 
susceptible schoolgirls in his five years of teaching English 
1911-16. Drama was his great love — after Miss Nell 

Brushingham of the music faculty whom he courted and 
married to the vicarious joy of romantic Salem girls. Under 
his direction French and Shakespearean plays were given 
on campus with men in town competing for the male 

Among other teachers of English in succeeding years 
were Miss DeBarritt, Miss Eleanor Chase, Miss Marian 
Blair, Mrs. Elizabeth Lilly Swendenberg and Mrs. Ora 

Dr. Pearl V. Willoughby was head of the English 
department for twenty-three years, 1924-47. The scholarly 
excellence of her teaching is well rememberd. She was 
the first woman to receive the doctor of philosophy degree 
from the University of Virginia, and one of two women 
upon whom the University's Phi Beta Kappa chapter 
bestowed its key, when the chapter voted to admit women. 
A perpetual and profound scholar, Dr. 'Willoughby also 
studied at Minnesota, Stanford and Indiana universities. 

Dr. 'William B. Todd was head of English in 1949- 
55, resigning when special research opportunities and hon- 
ors called him to Harvard, England and the University 
of Texas. 

Salem's present "Great Teacher" is Professor Jess Byrd, 
who through twenty-seven years has progressed from in- 
structor to head of the English department. Her influence 
upon English majors is indelible. An understanding friend, 
an illuminating and provocative teacher, she is also a 
hard task master, determined that each student shall aspire 
to and achieve the best of her capabilities. 

Beginning with Miss Lehman in 1864, a century 
of English teaching rounds out a significant cycle in 1964 
with Miss Byrd being the first designated "Emma Lehman 
Professor of English" at Salem. 

A Woman of Vision and Action 

Mary Howe Farrow, '09, was one of the organizers 
and the first president of the Council of Church 'Women 
in Greenville, S. C, which in 25 years has given com- 
munity service in united accomplishments. A history of 
its projects since 1938 was written in 1963. Among the 
most notable achievements are the Greenville County Home 
and the County Nursing Home for indigent and ill per- 
sons. These welfare facilities were built through the vision 
and influence and determination of the Council of Church 
'Women "to do unto others" in the Greenville community. 

Next to social service is Mrs. Farrow's interest in things 
historical. She is a former regent of Nathaniel Greene 
Chapter of the Daughters of the Revolution. 

And Salem College and her Class of '09, of which she 
is president, claim her loyalty and devotion. Her Class of 
'09 at graduation started the Emma Lehman Chair of 
Literature and has continued to contribute toward its en- 
dowment. Salem is proud of this Alumna Daughter and 
of the good works that characterize her life. 

(Memorial Service for students, faculty and employees in Home Morainan Church on November 25. 19631 


On this national day of mourning, proclaimed by the 
President of the United States, we have gathered in mem- 
ory of our late leader, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 35th 
President of the United States of America. 

At the time of his election to the presidency in I960, 
it seemed difficult if not impossible for many of us to 
call him "our leader." 

True, he was a man of education and learning, a cum 
laude graduate, in history, of our first institution of higher 
education, Harvard University, and the author of two 
best-sellers, "Why England Slept" and "Profiles in Cour- 

True, he was a naval hero in World War II, having 
narrowly escaped death and suffered serious injury in the 
Southwest Pacific, ( Solomon Islands ) , where his bravery 
and stamina secured the rescue of his crew after the sink- 
ing of PT 109. 

True, he was a seasoned campaigner and successful 
office holder, having been elected a representative to 
Congress and then Senator from Massachusetts. 

True, he was a rising star in the national firmament, 
having narrowly missed nomination for the Vice-Presi- 
dency in 1956. 

True, in the hotly contested political struggle of I960 
he won the support of loyal and enthusiastic disciples, 
eager to follow him to the new frontier of American life. 

Yet, withal, he received the mandate of the people by 
a scant majority of about 100,000 votes. Added to this 
was the unknown if not unwelcome quantity, his allegiance 
to the Roman Catholic Church, which had never before 
claimed a president in predominantly Protestant America. 
And his unprecedented youth, though an obvious asset 
along with his personal attractiveness, made men of age 
and tenure question his wisdom and strength. Recalling 
the words of Lincoln, men were asking, "Will John F. 
Kennedy divide us or unite us.''" 

Now, less than three years after becoming the nation's 
chief executive, he lies slain, the untimely victim of an 
assassin's bullets, a martyr for his native land — and per- 
haps for the whole world. 

Thus in his death and on this day of his burial we 
know and testify to that which we had increasingly realized 
during his lifetime: he has united us. He has united 
Americans of all religions, while reflecting the deep 
Christian faith of his own creed. He has made us proud 
and grateful to be U. S. citizens. He has proved himself 

"oitr leader," the president of all the people. His atten- 
tion to vast and minute matters, his concern for equal 
rights and opportunities, the vigorous efforts of his ad- 
ministration at home and abroad, his personal courage and 
patriotic devotion, these have commended him to each 
of us. 

Yet his compassion and warmth of feeling for his 
fellow men were not confined to us alone but reached 
out to Berliners and Africans — to free men and men 
yearning to be free, everywhere. He established the 
Peace Corps and re"kindled the ideals of a whole genera- 
tion of students in our colleges and universities. These 
things have endeared him not only to us but to all men. 

We have respected him as our great chief of state; we 
have loved him as the acknowledged leader of our nation 
and the free world! What else could cause such outpour- 
ings of esteem and affection as we have witnessed in 
these days — as thousands have stood in line and paid 
their silent homage at the bier of the fallen president in 
the rotunda of the Capitol; as millions have paid their 
tribute in tears and telegrams, in public sorrow and pri- 
vate sympathy for the Kennedy family in their grief; and 
as the kings and princes, presidents and prime ministers 
of the world's nations have arrived to join in final rites 
for our leader and friend? 

In the address which he would have delivered in Dallas, 
Texas, President Kennedy had planned to refer to the 
watchmen on the walls. In Isaiah, chapter 62, we read 
of the watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem, those who 
scanned the horizon and walked the walls day and night, 
to protect those within and to establish the city, that 
righteousness and salvation might go forth from it unto 
the end of the world. 

Our late Commander-in-Chief, the captain of the 
watchmen, has given us marching orders, not only to keep 
bright the flame of liberty, justice and equality in our 
land, but also to take the torch of freedom, truth and 
peace to lands across the seas. This John F. Kennedy led 
us and challenged us to do. This was his life. This was his 
service. This was his sacrifice, even unto death. 

"And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me: 
Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from 
henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from 
their labours; and their works do follow them." (Revela- 
tion 14:13). 

"And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your 
country can do for you — ask what you can do for your 
country." ( President John F. Kennedy ) .

who will teach science. 

"What are you going to take, Lil, history or science?" 

"Oh, science!" 

"I wouldn't, it's too hard." 

"Who are the new teachers this year, Jo?" 

"Well, there's a new English teacher, there's a new 
French teacher and there's a new science teacher from 

So was Miss Tilghman introduced by rumor to the 
10th grade of Salem Academy in September 1917. Later 
that morning Dr. Rondthaler and Mr. Heath did it formal- 
ly in chapel. She was small, almost plump, nearly blond, 
young (which delighted us) and fresh from college. Her 
Delta Gamma pin was the first sorority pin we'd been 
conscious of. We asked questions about it and everything. 
She conducted her classes with great dignity . . . "like col- 
lege," we said. We sat alphabetically ( instead of by one's 
best friends) and were addressed as Miss Carter, Miss 
Pfohl, etc. It was years before I knew her major had been 
biology, for she taught chemistry as if it were the most im- 
portant and exciting subject in the world. 

To one mousy 10th grader on the first row — chemistry 
became all of that and more. It satisfied her curiosity to 
know why and how things happened. KMn04 (deep 
purple ) poured into a reducing solution and instantly be- 
coming colorless, was something she could hardly wait 
to try herself. Trying to write the equation for the reaction 
was still more fun. In fact, equations were fun; and we 
turned in pages of them. The lab was wonderful; Miss 
Tilghman was the best teacher she'd ever had. I took her 
home to supper and even my grandmother approved, for 
Miss Tilghman was an Episcopalian and her mother's 
family was from Edenton. 

Later Miss Tilghman's mother came to spend the winter 
in Salem. She lived at our house and my cup of joy ran 
over for Miss Tilghman came once a week to have supper 
with us. I had a terrible crush on her. She helped me 
explain the acid holes in my clothes to my grandmother. 

The next year was the 11th grade and physics. This 
was not to me nearly as exciting as chemistry. Now all 
the class was interested in Miss Tilghman's brother being 
in the Navy. One day she appeared in class wearing a 
new ring. No one paid attention to the lesson. She stopped 
and said, "If you're going to stare it off me, I'll tell you 
about it. My brother sent it. It is made from a piece of a 
German Submarine." We were enthralled. 

That year we had a math teacher who, poor thing, let 
us get the best of her. Our favorite stunt was to let her 
explain a problem at least twice and then to raise a hand 
and say, "I'm sorry, but I still don't understand." Why she 
didn't explode I'll never know. I decided to try this in 
physics. Miss Tilghman already had carefully explained 
the theory a second time, when, from the back row now, 
I raised my hand and asked to have it re-explained. Her 
reaction was instant and to the point. The text book flew 
across the room at me as she said, "LiUie Carter, I know 
you understood it." Forty-five years later I'm still amazed 
and enlightened. 

The excitement of chemistry continued and the homely, 
shy girl left Salem for Carolina to get a B.S. in chemistry 
and then a Ph.D. But none of this was as thrilling to her 
as 10th grade chemistry at the Academy with Miss Tilgh- 
man teaching. When later this girl taught in Women's 
colleges, the few girls who really wanted to learn chemis- 
try were such a delight that she wondered if perhaps 
she had made Miss Tilghman feel that way too. 

That May I graduated from the Academy and Miss 
Tilghman went to Washington to join the police force 
and go to Night Law School. Now 45 years later she is 
married and a Federal Judge and I have acquired an M.D. 
and a husband and am a professor in a Medical College, 
(University of Tennessee in Memphis). But I still re- 
member vividly how acid turned the blue serge sleeve of 
the middy blouse of my Hofflin suit red and what my 
grandmother said when the red spot fell out. Even Miss 
Tilghman did not get me out of that one. I had to wear 
it patched. 

LiLLiE CuTLAR, Academy '19. College, x'23. took her B.S. in 1923 and Ph.D. in 1927 at the University of North

Walker, her professional name. In 1950 she married John E. Farrior. Both are professors. He teaches English at South- 
western University and she is on the faculty of the Medical School of the University of Tennessee in Memphis. 


in Old Salem 

The Home Moravian Churcto pictured on the cover was painted 
by Lucy Broiim James, '08. Her daughter is the author of this 
sketch of her mother and of her new avocation as an artist. 


Lucy Brown James, '08 

A new portrayal of Salem appeared in the Salem Book- 
store in the fall — a view of the Home Church — painted 
by Lucy Brown James, available in the form of Christmas 
cards or mounted prints. Although the artist has been 
a resident of Winston-Salem only since I960, she is not 
a "newcomer" to the Salem part of the city. 

When a very young Lucy Brown expressed her intention 
to leave her home in Greenville, Tennessee, and go away 
to school for a musical education, her mother stated firmly 
that there could be just one choice for such a young girl. 
She would be allowed to attend Salem, where her aunts 
on both sides of the family had studied voice. (Lucy's 
sister, Rena Brown, followed her at Salem, graduating in 

So — to Salem Lucy came in 1904. She arrived at mid- 
night and was greeted by Miss Lehman, robed in a volum- 
inous white gown and her hair done up on curlers! Sur- 
viving this initial shock, the following day Lucy summoned 
her courage and went to Dean Shirley for a "tryout." 
Luckily, through kind Fate, she played MacDowell's "To 
An Old Trysting Place" and thereby discovered that Dean 
Shirley, himself, had been a pupil of MacDowell. He en- 
rolled her as a music major and she enjoyed four glorious 
years of piano, pipe organ and voice. Playing for vespers 
and chapel services gave her great joy, and she never 
missed attending Sunday and Easter services at the Home 
Moravian Church. 

She was active in such campus organizations as cotillion 
and glee clubs, "The" Tennis Club, Bandanna Gang, 
Peaches, O. D. Tormentors, Euterpian Literary Society, 
King's Daughters, a charter member of Alpha Delta Pi, 
editor-in-chief of 'The Ivy," and literary editor of the an- 
nual. Her favorite expression "I've got SO much to do" 
is descriptive of her life then and now. 

Lucy Brown met her husband, James Burton James, at 

the home of Dr. and Mrs. Henry Bahnson, just a few 
steps up the Avenue from the college. As a result of this 
meeting she was for 48 happy years the wife of a busy 
lawyer in Greenville, North Carolina. It was here that 
her painting began in 1958, after he underwent an eye 
operation, and this new hobby proved to be a diversion 
for both of them. Though Lucy had never had an art 
lesson or held a brush in her hand, her innate love of 
beauty expressed itself readily; the flowers and trees and 
sunsets she had always savored as an avid gardener began 
to take shape on canvas. 

Now since her husband's death, her daughters, Eleanor 
Vance, an Academy graduate, and Lucy Willingham, x'36, 
who studied voice at the College, are delighted to have 
their mother living near them in Winston-Salem. She has 
tackled her art with fervor, studying at the Arts Council. 
She has continued to work at summer art schools in 
Burnsville and Flat Rock, and has toured galleries through- 
out the world in her travels. 

When asked about her painting of the Home Church, 
she spoke of a desire to capture the peace one feels when 
gazing at it across the Square, and with strong traces of 
her characteristic "effusiveness" (mentioned in her Salem 
annual ) she said, "The beauties of Old Salem and the 
Home Church have renewed my girlhood happiness. The 
chiming of the old clock touches my heart always in a 
special way. I am thankful to be hearing it again . . . Salem 
has been and still is such a part of my life!" 

And it evidently is destined to be a continuing part of 
her life as an artist, for she has just finished a picture of 
the Miksch Tobacco Shop. Prints of this are now available 
at the Bookstore. Next in her series will be the newly 
restored Brothers' House. So it would seem that the auspi- 
cious beginning made with the cards and prints of the 
Church are indeed just that . . . only the beginning. 

R^ ^ 

In the summer of 1963 I had a two months tour in 
Africa. Of course I did not see all of Africa, which is 
three times the size of our United States. However, I 
spent three weeks in South Africa, one week in Southern 
Rhodesia, three weeks in East Africa ( Kenya, Uganda, 
Tanganyika and Zanzibar ) . The last week was in Ethiopia 
and in Egypt, where a trip was taken to Aswan to see 
the Aswan Dam being built by the Russians. 

Most of my traveling was by jet, as flying is the only 
way to get around this amazing continent. It was thrilling 
to fly over snow-capped Kilimanjaro, the famous Victoria 
Falls, and the Great Rift Valley. 

At Jan Smuts Airport, Johannesburg, I was met by 
a very nice couple whom I have known for five years. 
They took me to their home for a meal and for a ride 
around this modern city, full of many tall buildings. They 
pointed out that South Africa is twice the size of Texas, 
and much of it did remind me of western USA. These 
friends were very sensitive about the bad publicity con- 
cerning the Apartheid policy. 

There are some thirteen million blacks to three million 
whites. Riding around "Joburg," I noticed that many of 
the white people's homes had metal grill work over the 
windows for protection. The black man has had to move 
to the big cities where he can obtain work. In Joburg, the 
gold mines are the big industry; in Kimberley, it is the 
diamond mines. 

In recent years, the South African Government has 
built many housing developments called "Black Man's 
Locations," which we were proudly shown. These were 



tiny two-room cinder-block houses with corrugated zinc 
roofs. They have no inside plumbing and a water spigot 
in the street supplies water for all. These hot looking 
houses may be an improvement over the native huts with 
thatched roofs, but they appealed to me less. The mass 
housing projects are said to be hastening detribalization 
and many of the natives are lost without anything to take 
the place of their old way of life. I noticed that these 
new settlements often are inconveniently located in re- 
lation to where the native works. Many natives have 
to spend several hours getting to and from their jobs. 
They are required to carry a pass card and have to be 
off the city streets at a certain hour in the evening. 

One of the newest experiments in Apartheid is taking 
place on a tract of land on the east coast of South Africa 
called the Transkei. At present, there are about 20,000 
white people living in this area which is the size of New 
Jersey. They must eventually move, since the Transkei 
is to become an all-native separate state. We spent a day 
at Umtata, capital of the Transkei, and saw the new na- 
tive Parliament Building. An agricultural program is 
under way to help the native learn how best to farm his 

The largest tribe is the Xhosas. They live quite simply 
in round thatched huts called "kraals," made of mud and 
dung. Their chief food is "mealie," sometimes called 
"kaffir corn," and most of their cooking is done out of 

If you want to see African wildlife, do not delay — as 
the animals are fast becoming extinct. East Africa is the 
last outpost for wildlife. Fortunately, there are many large 
national parks, but these reservations do not stop poach- 
ing. The Masai Tribe of Kenya are wandering herdsmen 
who insist upon owning more cattle than the land will 
support. Their skinny herds require much water and graz- 
ing land, and there is not enough room for Masai cattle 
and wildlife too. 

I had not expected to see the large Indian population 
that I found throughout South and East Africa. I was 
told that the Indian was brought over to work in sugar 
cane fields of South Africa and to build the railroads of 
East Africa. Today the Indian is the merchant in towns 
throughout, and yet the Asian is not allowed to vote. 

In every village we saw the black men at Singer sewing 
machines taking orders for clothes. The women were in 
charge of the native markets. They also were the ones 
who farmed, not the men folks. 

During my visit, the various countries of East Africa 
were in the last stages of breaking ties with England 
and becoming independent. The Federation of Northern 
and Southern Rhodesia and Nyasaland was dissolving into 
three separate states, while Kenya, Uganda, and Tang- 
anyika were working toward federation. In spite of some 
chaos, the people of East Africa seemed to be more hope- 
ful of the future than those of South Africa, where there 
was much tension and fear. 

''Miss Judge Whitener, 
Ma'am'' . . . 

It sounded like such a simple thing to do when asked 
that I write an article for The Bulletin about myself and 
my work. That was four months ago and, as the deadline 
drew near, I became aware that, while it is easy to talk 
about oneself, it is hard to describe oneself on paper, par- 
ticularly if one happens to have been an average student 
in English while at Salem. But my pride in becoming an 
author for Alma Mater outweighed my fears and limita- 

For those who were not at Salem circa '49, let me say 
that after graduation I went to the University of North 
Carolina Law School. The Dean made me feel that I 
would be at the head of the class when he said, "A grade 
of C at Salem is equivalent to an 'A' in some departments 
of the University." While I did graduate in 1952, it was 
far from the head of the class, but I had gained knowl- 
edge of and love and respect for the law. 

After passing the Bar examination and working one 
year at the Institute of Government in Chapel Hill I re- 
turned to my hometown of Hickory and practiced law with 
my father until his death in 1956. From then until July 
1962 I was on my own, experiencing all the problems 
and pleasures connected with the practice of law. Although 
I could expand on that, I have chosen, rather, to discuss 
more current events — those since July 1962, when I 
became Her Honor, Judge of the Hickory Municipal 

Having been Hickory's first and only woman attorney, 
naturally I then became her first woman judge. And I am 
the first to admit that I understood the inner fears that 
many had concerning a woman judge. The law enforce- 
ment officers were bound to have been worried. They 
undoubtedly felt they could not be as direct with a woman 
as with a man; that a woman was not suited to this tra- 
ditional area of man's work. The public, which depends 
upon its courts for protection, could not help wondering. 
Having, however, the support of fellow attorneys, I em- 
barked upon what has now become the most challenging 
and satisfying period of my life. Looking back, I like to 
think that fears have been dispelled. 

A lower court deals with basic, persistent problems of 
infinite variety and is in far more direct contact with 
people than a higher court. The Hickory Municipal Court 
is such a court with jurisdiction of lesser criminal offenses. 
The interesting aspect of our court, unlike the majority of 
city and county courts, is that there are two divisions: 
municipal or recorder's for the adult, and juvenile for the 
youngster under sixteen. Hickory is a trading center for 
a multi-county area; and just as her merchants are busy, 
so are her courts and law enforcement agencies. Municipal 
Court is held four days a week and the fifth day is set 
aside for Juvenile Court, though hearings are held when- 


ever necessary. In fact, we have on occasion held hearings 
at 2:00 a.m. 

Municipal Court is never dull. The judge soon learns 
that going by the book and "$30.00 or 30 days" is not 
always the answer. He must, as I have done, "urge" treat- 
ment of various disorders, threaten or cajole tardy fathers 
for support payments to children, remonstrate with a 
mother about a filthy house and order periodic inspection 
of it by the court, or separate two persons not husband 
and wife. Then, too, the judge must listen and counsel,

While law school and the practice of law prepared me 
for the role of municipal court judge, neither helped to 
any great extent in the work of the Juvenile Court. As 
was brought to my attention at a conference of N. C. 
Juvenile Court Judges last spring in Chapel Hill, there 
is no course or series of studies in the law school curri- 
culum on the Juvenile Court. The lawyers, and consequent- 
ly the judges, are untrained in this disturbingly expanding 
area of the law. Experience is the teacher and the chal- 

The judge of a small juvenile court must do many things 
other than decide a given matter. I have transported chil- 
dren to the state training schools, explained social diseases 
to boys and girls, searched for missing children, gone to 
hospitals with sick children, listened to doctors tell me 
a 13-year-old girl was pregnant. There have been dismal 
failures and satisfying successes. We feel that effective 
work is being done. 

There are, of course, many humorous moments. One 
of my regulars begins every sentence with "Please, Miss 
Judge Whitener, Ma'm; " another always assures me with 
pride that he is a good worker and never misses a day.

S//san Lyiine Raiidak, x'62. is pursuing knowledge in self-financed 
travel and study in foreign countries. Her year in Prance is de- 
scribed below. Her second year was spent in England. Spain and 
Israel. She is currently enrolled as the "only foreign student" at 
Central University in Quito. Ecuador. She lives with an Ecuadorian 
family that has seven daughters. Two of these are in the United 
States; one at Radcliffe. the other working as secretary to a Har- 
vard professor. 

In February, 1961, after two and a half years of battling 
disinterest in my studies, I left Salem and returned to my 
home in Connecticut. I took an office job to earn money 
for travel and study abroad. In June I secured a position 
as head of children's activities for a private beach club, 
and by September I had enough money for the experience 
I wanted as a foreign student in France. 

I sailed on the Groote Bear, a student ship of the Hol- 
land-American Line. After twelve marvelous days ( for the 
25% who weathered the two hurricanes and three north- 
easters) we sailed into Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The 
next day I headed for Bordeaux, France, after goodbyes 
to other students who, like myself, had their address books 
half filled with addresses from all over Europe. 

Two days later I was met in Bordeaux by the mother 
of the French family I had visited in the summer of 1959. 
All four children were at the door to greet me with a 
bubbling of French that I seemed to have forgotten. How- 
ever, after a month with them, my French was up to par 
and we decided that I should take a room in the center 
of town and lead the life of a university student. 

We located a lovely room in the home of an old maid 
kindergarten teacher. The rent was $26 a month — in- 
ckiding the luxury of a bath ■ — which later became the 
public bath for my foreign student friends who were not 
so extravagant. We set up a weekly bathing and hair-set- 
ting routine that drove "Tante," my landlady, crazy. She 
threatened to raise the rent to pay for the extra gas and 
water we used. 

Once settled, I started walking from one end of town 
to the other to get acquainted with the different sections 
before classes started. Bordeaux is typical of most foreign 
universities in that classes begin when the professors feel 
like coming, but once they start they proceed at a fast 
and furious pace. 

I found that I did not know the language as well as 
I thought I did and spent many weeks just listening until 
finally the words and ideas penetrated the brain channels 
with comprehension. Fortunately I am blessed with ears 
that pick up sounds quickly and clearly, and this — along 
with my college background and the summer in France — 
contributed to my being one of the first of the 150 
foreigners to "catch on" to the lectures. 

In addition to the university classes in French civiliza- 
tion, literature, drama and discussion classes, I also audited 

classes at the mental hospital in abnormal psychology and 
classes at the experimental center for semi-deaf children 
of the city. This gave me some idea of the institutional 
facilities and their systems. 

For recreation I joined volleyball and basketball teams 
and started swimming for the city's sports organization 
to keep from getting as fat as a pig on French pastry. I 
also decided to try to teach myself to play the piano, a 
long neglected dream. "Tante" had been a piano teacher 
in her younger years and had two dusty pianos in her 
terribly dusty living room. Since I had no musical train- 
ing other than four years in the Greenwich High School 
chorus and a slightly gifted ear, my first attempts were 
pretty bad. So bad, in fact, that "Tante" ruled that I 
practice only when she was not in the house. So I struggled 
along in the early morning hours after she had left for 
school bothering only the neighbors, who let me know 
when they could bear no more. They beat on the walls or 
turned the radio volume so high that I could not hear 
what I was playing. Despite these obstacles, by the end 
of the year I had arrived at Clementi and had gone through 
half of his book of sonatinas. This was the first time in 
my life that I had had the patience to start something 
and carry it through for any length of time. 

One big disappointment for many of the foreign stu- 
dents was "the closed door" of the people of Bordeaux. 
They seemed to have this aloof attitude even to the 
French students from other parts of France. I was a for- 
tunate student, however, who had a local "family" and 
through them I met many other Bordelaise, among them 
a girl of my own age, Christel Fulchi. She and her family 
made me a constant guest in their home and shared their 
friends with me. The Bordelaise were not really hostile; 
they were just unsure of the students, French or foreign. 
Once they became friends, they gave a friendship deeper 
and fuller than most. 

I was lucky in my relationships with other foreign stu- 
dents and spent more time with them than with my 
French friends. As a group and as individuals, I learned 
more from them than from the French, who represented 
only one nationality. As students representing many dif- 
ferent ways of life and thought, we had more than occa- 
sional disagreements and I think we learned more about 
life and understanding its variances than in all of our 
previous educational experiences. 

Among my closest friends were a German (Gusti), an 
Irish girl, a Spaniard, an Australian and an English girl. 
Gusti had a car and during my first trip with her (a 
week in Spain ) she adopted me as her "little sister," as 
she was ten years my elder. We became fast friends and 
I accompanied her on all the trips she made during vaca-

Experiment in International Living 


This is a simple story and must be told in an uncompli- 
cated manner. It cannot be a completely objective evalua- 
tion. It is naturally biased and full of personal feeling, for 
it deals with an experiment of mind and, more especially 
of heart. 

Last spring Winston-Salem selected me as her "Com- 
munity Ambassador for 1963," thereby enabling me to 
make a trip to the country which I had chosen previously. 
I was to go to Chile with a group of The Experiment in 
International Living. This organization in 1963 alone 
sponsored the exchange of 29,000 young people among 
seventy-nine nations. During the thirty-two years of its 
existence it has included many Salem alumnae. The head- 
quarters of The Experiment are in Vermont, although it is 
by no means dominated by the United States. It combines 
lofty ideals with experience and organization of amazing 

The ideals are based on the belief that an exchange of 
persons on an individual basis is the best possible way to 
build better relations among the nations of the world. 
Every Experimenter is sent with the hope that his experi- 
ence will be both an immediate and a lasting success. It is 
to be a learning process for the group member. It is he 
who must make all necessary adjustments, and he is al- 
lowed to teach only by his presence and interest and rep- 
resentation of his way of life. 

The plan for carrying out these ideals is basically the 
same for every group leaving every country. There is a 
brief period of intensive orientation, a "home stay" of 
one month with a carefully selected family, a trip of about 
a week's duration, and the final two weeks spent in the 
capital of the foreign country. 

My Experiment followed this schedule with only minor 
changes. After my Salem graduation there were busy days 
of learning more about this city in which I had lived for 
four years. In July, boarding a plane for the first time in 
my life, I set off on a nine-weeks adventure, unable to 
imagine any of the experiences which were to come. The 
first stop was Miami, where the group of eleven from all 
over the United States met for the first time. Here "I" 
becomes "we" and "my" becomes "our," for so much of 
the Experiment is shared that one does not wish to be 

After a night's acquaintance we boarded a plane which 
took us to our new country. We flew over Cuba and Ja- 
maica, stopped briefly in Panama City and in Lima, Peru, 
and landed in Santiago, Chile, nineteen hours after leav- 
ing the United States. 

There were three days of orientation at a resort at the 
foot of the first range of the Andes Mountains. The win- 
ter weather caused us to shiver as we tried to accustom 
ourselves to non-heated living quarters. Then another 

nineteen-hour trip south, this time by train, to our homes 
in the town of Valdivia. 

There the people we were soon to call our families and 
friends awaited us. After a touching rendition of "God 
Bless America" sung in English by a group of small school 
children, we scattered to various parts of the city with our 
families. This first warm welcome was repeated hundreds 
of times during the next five weeks, and we were more 
than convinced that we were indeed "at home." It was a 
busy time of both official and personal activities. Our lives 
with our families were the center of the program, but the 
challenges and interest of others in the city also demanded 
much attention. 

The challenges were of many varieties. Some arose from 
an idealized admiration of the United States or an ex- 
aggerated idea of the wealth of our nation. Others were of 
a far more critical nature. Both types were equally diffi- 
cult to answer. Having realized immediately upon our ar- 
rival that Chile was a truly under-developed country, we 
were aware of the problems of answering incompletely. 
We were, of course, confronted with the expected ques- 
tions about the Alliance for Progress, the Peace Corps, 
our racial problems, our export of poor and unrealistic 
movies which often lead their young people to make mis- 
takes, the fast pace of our way of life and why it is that 
way, our refusal to allow the Communist Party to func- 
tion as any other political party, and many other topics. 
The questions were deep and penetrating, some people 
hoping to find justification for United States action which 
they opposed but would rather defend, while others were 
looking for further reason to condemn. To reply with 
honesty and clarity was a task requiring a combination of 
the backgrounds and language abilities of all group mem- 

Collectively and individually we faced the demands of 
becoming a part of a family and a society which were in 
many ways different from our own. Although most of the 
differences were of no real magnitude, we had to learn 
habits of daily living and to overcome language barriers 
before our Experiment could proceed to any depth. 

My family was a truly generous and loving one, of 
which it was easy to feel a part. But being the youngest 
of three sisters in my North American family, I found it 
unusual to be placed more than half-way up the scale of 
five brothers and one sister in my Chilean family! Four 
meals a day, beginning with breakfast in bed served by 
one of three maids, were also unusual! There were other 
customs which had to be learned, such as spending the 
winter in an unheated home, seeing continuous rain for 
a month, riding on streets without stop signs or lights, 
noting that there were only seventy-five cars and a hun- 
dred or so trucks for a population of over 120,000, having 
no wastebaskets, taking a bath only once a week, cooking 
on wood stoves, shopping for groceries at a dozen stores 


rather than one supermarket, and having wine with all 

There was little dating among the young people as done 
in our country, but entire families went to parties which 
lasted until five o'clock in the morning with continuous 
dancing. We saw poverty and wealth side by side; chil- 
dren were in school from early morning until late after- 
noon studying as many as thirteen subjects at one time. 
There were earth tremors during the night, horse-drawn 
wagons on every city street, and buses used by everyone at 
all hours of the day and night. Television was missing, 
and radio programs were comparable to those in this coun- 
try some ten or more years ago. These and many other 
things were strange at first, but we soon grew accustomed 
to them and, with the help of families and friends, came 
to feel that we really belonged in that life. 

Indeed the people gave us the strongest feeling of our 
own homes, for they, themselves, were no different from 
our families and friends in the United States. We were 
treated as members of the families which had "adopted" 
us, joining in family fun and private jokes as well as fusses, 
without special privileges or treatment as a guest. The 
generosity of each individual was more than we had ex- 
pected or could comfortably accept at first. But it was 
awarded to us no more than to others. We received and 
returned their generosity, but the return could never be 
equal to what was received. Perhaps this was because it 
was the customary thing for Chileans, while for us it was 
difficult to make our response spontaneous. Our realiza- 
tion of this sometimes left us feeling somewhat ashamed 
and uncomfortable. 

We had been warned about another type of uncom- 
fortable feeling before going to Chile — "culture shock." 
None of the group experienced this shock upon our ar- 
rival in Chile or during our stay there. But according to 
letters exchanged since returning to our homes, all of us 
were completely bewildered by the abrupt change of sur- 
roundings upon coming back. Surely this was because we 
did not expect to be surprised. Nevertheless, my ride from 
the airport to my home — on a dual-lane highway in a 
large car — was a perplexing experience. And, for days 
I hardly knew how to react or what to say about an Ex- 
periment which had been completed in only the geo- 
graphical sense. 

In another sense it is still not complete, and the real 
values lie in continuing the ties and friendships developed 
and in applying the knowledge gained. This is done 
through the exchange of letters and pictures. Often there 
is a real homesickness for Valdivia. It is a feeling which 
Salem alumnae may have at times; a wish to return and 
share for a little while, even though there is certainty of 
some change and even disappointment. This feeling occurs 
when I read a letter from my twelve-year-old brother Mario, 
or remember a Fourth of July celebration prepared by 
some little children, or tuck my cold feet under a bed rug, 
which was a prized wedding gift to my Chilean mother, 
and given in turn to me, her "eldest daughter." 

I think of these things and wonder how I can ever re- 
pay these friends, or those who sent me to them, and how 
I can ever "write up" an Experiment which continues in 
the minds and hearts of eleven North Americans and 
their Chilean families and friends.

Our foreign group by no means consisted of only fe- 
males; I met my fair share of the male population in the 
student courses. We had an organization in Bordeaux, 
found in many foreign cities, the France-Grand Bretagne — 
where we met to converse in English and to dance. At one 
of these gatherings I met a charming and good looking 
English boy, and Jonathan became my steady escort for 
several months. I am not an advocate of "mixed marriages," 
but I had a wonderfully interesting time in this mixed 

Near the end of the term, but before exams, my mother 
and a friend arrived to spend six weeks touring some of 
the European countries. I sacrificed exams with "nary a 
tear" and met them in Tours, for a drive through the 
chateaux country. Mother had bought a VW for the pur- 
pose, which made the trip more interesting. From the Loire 
valley we went down to Bordeaux and on to Carcasonne, 
Cannes, Nice, and then crossed over into Italy. I left them 
in Florence and flew back to Bordeaux to pack and say 
farewell to my friends. 

Mother, doubtless, was glad to get rid of me for awhile, 
as she disapproved of my travel habits. I was used to tak- 
ing the minimum clothing necessities and to sleeping in 
the car or in student hostels. I avoided restaurants and 
hotels which revealed one as a "first rate tourist" — the 
type of person most disliked by foreign students. 

I met mother in London, where we left the car for my 
brother and his friends to pick up later for their vacation 
tour. We boarded the SS France on June first and four 
days later arrived in New York. I spent half the crossing 
sulking over having to come home and the other half 
smiling over the thought of seeing my American friends 
and family again. 

Two weeks later I resumed the job held the previous 
summer and began saving for the next trip which was 
to take me to England, Spain and Israel and another year 
of fun, excitement and learning! 


Laura Thomas Hall, '27, has a top record in her 
scientific career. She received Salem's second B.S. in chem- 
istry in 1927. (The late Eloise Willis Higgins had the 
first chemistry B.S. in 1926.) Laura was the first woman 
to earn a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry at the University 
of North Carolina in 1936, and the first woman to hold 
a teacher's assistantship at UNC. 

In 1942 she joined Kendall Company's Textile Division, 
pioneering in research on raw cotton fibers. As far as is 
known, she is the only woman in this phase of industrial 

She has published many articles and is listed in Who's 
Who of Anierican Women. She also has a scientific ap- 
proach to cooking, in which she excels. Laura and her 
registered Boston Terrier, "Hall's Mark Supreme," live in 
a perfect little house which she built at 1812 Truman 
Road, Charlotte, N. C. 


Meet Me at Salem in May 















PEOPLE and PLANS determine the success of Reunions. 

The above classes include the PEOPLE whom Salem 
anticipates with a very special welcome on Alumnae Day, 
May 30, 1964. 

PLANS must be made by these PEOPLE — under the 
leadership of class officers — to insure happy Reunions. 
Interest and enthusiasm must originate in Classes ■ — ■ it 
cannot be created by the Alumnae Office. 

Suggested Procedure 

Begin now writing to classmates to meet you at Salem. 
If each writes to her special friends, all will be reached 
personally, and you will aid your Class President in pub- 
licizing the Call to Reunion. 

The President should appoint a Winston-Salem mem- 
ber as chairman of any off-campus party you may wish 
to have on Saturday night. The name of this chairman 
should be given to the Alumnae Office and she should 
report plans and names of people expected. 

Overnight Guests at Salem 

Alumnae may stay (gratis) on campus Friday and 
Saturday nights. May 29, and 30, provided reservations 
are made in the Alumnae Office before May 25, Double 
rooms will be ready in Babcock Dormitory, but Salem 
must have your reservation on file in advance. 

Reservation Forms will be printed in the April BULLE- 
TIN for you to fill out and return. 



On June 8, 1822, fifteen-year-old Caroline Gachette 
from Milledgeville, Georgia, was registered at the Mora- 
vian Boarding School in Salem, North Carolina, by her 
father, Charles Gachette. They had made the long journey 
from Georgia in the family carriage. 

Since the young lady was to stay for two years, she 
brought a considerable amount of luggage with her. 
Among the pieces was a sturdy, brass-bound tin hat trunk 
filled with coquettish chapeaux that became a fashionable 
young girl with a French name. 

One wonders how little Miss Gachette adjusted to the 
plain living and strict rules, to the daily schedule of work 
and play under supervision of the Moravian Sisters, who 
were with the pupils constantly — in classroom, dining 
room, study hall and even in sleeping quarters. Undoubted- 
ly the teachers were kind and an affectionate family at- 
mosphere prevailed, for they called the girls entrusted to 
their care "the Daughters of Salem." 

In 1824, Caroline took her hat trunk home to Georgia, 
and soon thereafter she became Mrs. Jurnigan, devoted 
wife and mother. How often the hat trunk traveled during 
her married life we do not know. 

But in January, 1964, some 142 years after its first 
journey from Georgia, the little trunk traveled back to 
Salem. This time it was brought as a gift to the Alumnae 
House from the great-great-granddaughter of Caroline 
Grachette Jurnigan. The donor was Dorothy Williams, 
Salem Academy graduate of 1944, now Mrs. James L. 
Taylor of Greensboro, North Carolina. To her our thanks 

for this antique box which has been in her family for five 

The hat trunk now rests in a restored "alcove" in the 
Alumnae House. It stands beside a small bed made in 
the early 19th century for the schoolgirls of Salem. Per- 
haps at night the much traveled trunk whispers tales of 
high society to the plain little bed that has never left 

New Buildings Concern Architect Lee 

Elizabeth Bobbitt Lee, x'49, transferred from Salem to 
the School of Design at North Carolina State from which 
she received a degree in architecture, and was licensed to 

After a trip to Europe and a brief experience in New 
York, she opened her own office in 1956 in her home 
town of Lumberton, N. C. She has designed many houses 
and buildings in North Carolina towns. 

She is the State's only woman architect and was re- 
cently named "Tar Heel of the Week" by the Raleigh 
News and Observer. She is Secretary of the N. C. Chapter 
of the American Institute of Architects, a member of 
Lumberton's Urban Renewal Commission, active on the 
Girl Scout Council and teaches an adult class at her Pres- 
byterian Church. Along with a professional knowledge of 
design in the predominantly man's world of architecture, 
blond, blue-eyed Miss Lee has a vivacious femininity and 
a keen sense of humor.

involving liquor, called late that night to assure me that 
I vi^as lovely and that we could get to be "good" friends 
by going out. In a morning's time, I may be referred to 
as "Little Lady," "Sir," "Miss Honor," or privately as 
"that . . . woman judge" with a few very descriptive adjec- 
tives between "that" and "woman." I learned recently that 
one of my juveniles had a glorious fight on the school 
playground with another youngster, who felt I was stupid 
to say the least. My champion won. 

Often I have been asked if the things I see and hear, 
the sight of the repeating offender, the hopelessness of 
some problems, have made me bitter or cynical. My reply 
is always a resounding "no." Naturally, I get discouraged 
and tired, but never bitter. The necessary and important 
tasks of public speaking and occasional classroom teaching 
have become easier and, in fact, interesting. The work 
is constant and demanding but so interesting that I have 
never considered it difficult. 

I am a better person for having experienced this life. 
Personally and professionally I have gained new insight 
into and respect for the officer seeking to do his job, 
the dedicated caseworker, the school principal and teacher 
helping a rebellious child and his family, the personnel 
at state and private schools and institutions striving to 
do their jobs. I have broadened and I have learned. Re- 
cently, I was confronted in Juvenile Court with a trying 
matter and confessed to the Probation Officer that I was 
unsure. Seeking to console me, she blurted out, with a 
subsequent blush, "But just think how much you've im- 

Moravian Christmases 

The 1963 Christmas card of Bishop and Mrs. Kenneth 
Pfohl included an account of early Moravian observances. 

In 1741 Count von Zinzendorf and the first Moravians 
in Pennsylvania gathered together in the first-built log 
house and sang the German Epiphany hymn. From this 
hymn the name Bethlehem was given to their new home 
in America. 

In 1753 in North Carolina the first settlers held the 
first Christmas Eve Watch Service in a hunter's cabin ■ — 
and the name Bethabara (House of Passage) was given 
to the place. 

In 1766 the first Christmas Eve Lovefeast was cele- 
brated in the new settlement of Salem . . . which name 
denotes Peace. 

The origin of lighted candles at Christmas Eve Love- 
feast was in 1747 in Marienborn, a small town in Western 
Bohemia. This became an established Moravian custom. 
Christmas candles were used for the first time in North 
Carolina at the Children's Lovefeast in Bethabara and Be- 
thania in 1762. 

To Bessie Whittington Pfohl, Salem graduate of 1899, 
our thanks for these historical facts about a beautiful 
Moravian custom, which is enshrined in the memory of all 
Salem students.

61. Though the increased number in advanced classes 
has involved some changes in methods of teaching, the 
change on the whole has been a stimulus to the depart- 

Other changes we expect to make are to add a course 
in Modern Poetry and to have all faculty members teach- 
ing more advanced courses so that the students will be 
exposed to a greater variety of personalities. We also 
hope to add, in cooperation with Wake Forest, a semester 
in writing taught by a recognized author. 

We are looking forward now to the construction of 
the new dormitory. The increase in the number of stu- 
dents will enable us to add one or rwo faculty members 
to the department and implement the plans we now have. 

The English Department continues to attract a number 
of superior students. Those who choose to go to graduate 
school have no difficulty in being accepted, as in the 
past. Some of the universities they have chosen include 
not only nearby Carolina, Duke, and Virginia, but also 
Emoty University, Columbia University, and the Univer- 
sities of Indiana, Connecticut, and California. Some have 
been granted generous scholarships. 

Our graduates pursue a variety of careers. We take pride 
in the number teaching in private and public schools; 
in those teaching in the University of Florida, the Uni- 
versity of New Mexico, Randolph-Macon Woman's Col- 
lege, UNC-Greensboro. We take pride in those holding 
positions with magazines such as The National Geographic 
and with publishing firms in New York and with banks 
in Atlanta. We take equal pride in those making a 
career of rearing a family. Whatever the pursuit, we 
feel the values derived from the study of English and 
other liberal arts subjects are important for individuals in 
developing the maturity to understand themselves and 
their world and to bear the vicissitudes to which all are 

I believe from your letters that your education has 
enabled many of you to attain this maturity. These letters 
come from you who are scattered from Boston to London, 
from Richlands to Greensboro, from New York to Tokyo, 
from Los Angeles to Frankfurt. I reflect with pride and 
humility on the gratifying results you feel you have gained 
from your education. 


Please mark the Trustee Ballot you will receive soon 
and return it promptly. The candidates deserve your 
thoughtful and decisive support. 

Do your duty to them, to Salem, and to yourself by 
choosing one of the two well qualified nominees to rep- 
resent you on the College Board of Trustees. It is this 
Board that governs Salem's present and plans for her 
future. Alumnae in greater numbers should exercise their 
privilege of voting.

Twenty-Five Years Since Graduation 


Maud Battle Johnson lives in Richmond, ivhere her 
husband is an industrial development agent for the 
Commonwealth of Virginia. They have two sons, Larry, 
13 and Phil, 10. Maud, a former newspaper woman, 
does free lance writing now. 


It simply couldn'c have been twenty-five years! 

We, thirty-niners, haven't had a real get-together since 
that sunny morning when we received our diplomas, un- 
able to believe the great moment had arrived. Most of us 
lingered through the afternoon for "Bill" Fulton's wedding 
in Home Church, then said hurried goodbys, vowing to 
write and make every reunion without fail. 

It hasn't worked out that way. It never does. 

A lot intervened to keep us from coming back to 
Salem except in our thoughts. There were two wars and 
some of us were in service. There were careers and jobs, 
husbands who vowed in every reunion year, "Next time 
you're going back no matter what!" There were babies 
by the dozens, and croup and measles and Cub Scouts and 
Brownies and teenagers with plans of their own, not to 
mention budgets that wouldn't stretch another notch. 
There were many miles separating some of us from Salem. 
Most of us, hanging diapers on clothes line, or working 
at a typewriter, or trying to teach a roomful of wiggling 
youngsters, would think nostalgicly about Salem when 
each reunion was at hand. 

As freshmen, 107 of us arrived at Salem in the midst 
of the depression but with stars in our eyes and plans 
to skyrocket into space. Of course, we didn't talk about 
outer space then, or going to the moon or making orbits 
around the earth. We talked about working in New York 
or going to Europe or getting married. The nearest thing 
to an orbit was the fight for a seat in the library where 
it was quiet enough to study for six-week tests. 

We had a lot of problems and questions those first 
few months. Which teacher for freshman English — Miss 
Lilly or Mrs. Downs? How could the music majors keep 
their feet warm when they practiced at night? How much 
outside reading would Miss Ferguson require in history? 
Would Mr. Curlee marry Miss Vaughn and what about 
Miss Riggan and Mr. Spaugh? Would they make it — in 
spite of Cupid's little helpers in Clewell who kept eyes 
and ears wide open? Was it worth it to fight the blue 
haze in the Green Room before or after meals? Should 
you plan to get a teacher's certificate even if you knew 
you didn't want to teach? 

By our second year we felt like old-timers. Our number 
was reduced to 67 Sophomores. Some had dropped out, 
some transferred to other schools, and a couple of class- 
mates even got married. (In 1936 nobody would dream 

of going back to college after marriage unless it was to 
graduate school! ) 

By the time we were seniors there was a new gym at 
Salem and a beautiful new library. We helped move 
books, lugging them by armloads across the campus until 
our muscles ached. There was talk of other new buildings. 
The depression was almost over but if you'd told us a 
war was looming, we would have laughed. We were more 
interested in things closer at hand — practice teaching, 
life in the home ec house, recitals, senior exams, marriage 

And we had fun. We sang "I Get A Kick Out of You," 
"Blue Moon," and "Deep Purple." We listened to a late 
radio program called Moon River keeping the volume 
down so Miss Lawrence would think we were asleep. We 
watched Nelson Eddy make love to Jeannette Mac- 
Donald and we drooled over Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers 
movies. We drank endless cokes in Welfare's Drug Store, 
passed the time of day with Mr. Suavely in the Salem 
Book Store, wore twin sweaters (matching pullovers and 
cardigans), hoped for invitations to May Frolics and 
somehow we managed to get some education. 

Thank Heaven we went to school before the days of 
entrance exams and college boards and SCAT tests! When 
our 58 graduates finally got our hands on those diplomas 
we thought we knew more than we actually did, but at 
least Salem had given us a foundation. We didn't appre- 
ciate the value of it on Commencement Day, but we've 
come to appreciate it since. 

And then we scattered. 

Most of us have kept up close friendships with a few 
classmates. We've had the fun of bumping into each other 
in such unlikely places as elevators or powder rooms or 
airports, staring at a slightly familiar face and then saying 
afterwards, a bit too loudly as if we were trying to con- 
vince ourselves, "I didn't recognize her at first. She has 
changed a lot, but I must be just the same for she knew 
7ne at once!" 

We still think of ourselves as "girls." It simply couldn't 
have been twenty-five years! 

But let's face it. The reunion coming up on May 30, 
1964, is our twenty-fifth. We'll have a lot to tell each 
other, a lot to see on Salem's campus, a lot of snapshots 
of families to exhibit, a lot of chatting to do. We'll have 
good times and sad times and happy times to remember! 

See you at Salem on the thirtieth of May?

Our association as classmates of more 
than 60 years ago would be a faint mem- 
ory but for our love of Salem, our interest 
in her growth and appreciation of what 
she has meant to us. Through this mutual 
love and interest in Salem some of our 
most precious friendships developed and 

Our hearts go out in sympathy to Mary 
Wood Means, who within a few months 
lost her devoted husband, Munger Means, 
and her brother. General John E. Wood. 
Gen. Wood graduated from M.I.T. and 
Harvard and studied architecture in Italy. 
His military honors were numerous. He 
was a friend to our class. 

We grieve to report the June death of 
Matiella Cocke Wofford in Asheville. She 
had poor vision for some years and suf- 
fered a second fall, while her husband 
was quite ill at Oteen Hospital. Our sym- 
pathy to "Mr. Charlie" and family and best 
wishes for his recovery. 

A happy New Year to all!

Of the 15 of us, I am grateful to have 
had happy Christmas greetings from all 
but five. 

You will be sorry to know that Liza's 
husband, Rhett, has been ill, but will re- 
joice that he is much better and home from 
the hospital. 

Many of you have been on the go! That 
is fine, for you must get in good condi- 
tion for our 60th Reunion, May 30th, at 
Salem. You know I want my home to be 
full to overflowing with '04's for that 
happy occasion. 

So make your plans NOW to be here, 
and let's have a very happy time together. 
President Mary Culpepper Foreman will 
be writing to you soon. 

Those who can come for another Salem 
reunion, please write to me without delay.

Let me know NOW if you will be at 
Salem for our Golden Anniversary. 

For the second time in a year our circle 
was broken by the death of Julia Crawford 
Steckel on Sept. 16, 1963. In the years 
since we graduated, Julia has visited Salem 
many times and has kept in close touch 
with her classmates. Julia possessed that 
lovely quality of constancy. Her friendships 
and loyalties never wavered. She was al- 
ways enthusiastic about Salem and every- 
thing and everybody connected with the 
college. She frequently entertained the 
Salem Club of Lehigh Valley in her hos- 
pitable home in Nazareth, Pa. 

To her husband, Charles Steckel, the 
class sends deepest sympathy. 

Hope Coolidge, who retired from Abbot 
Academy in 1962, enjoyed a trip to Greece 
in spring, '63. We wish she would write 
of her travels. 

Has Kate Ebotn Cutting retired from 
teaching? She has moved to Raleigh — 
2514 Vanderbilt Ave. 

Adele McKnight Whicker has a pro- 
fessional family — lawyer, doctor and 
dentist sons, a daughter a practical nurse, 
and another a "housewife." 

Our sympathy to Velma Martin Burrus 
and Flossie Martin, '10, in the loss of their 
brother. Dr. Lester P. Martin. 

Mary Pemberton has mended from a 
fall she had last summer. 

Nellie Pilkington Johnson writes of visits 
from her son and daughter and the joy 
four grandchildren provide.

First, sorrow at the sudden death of 
Esther Bain White on September 14. She 
spent Labor Day with Frances and Lola 
at Pawley's Island, S. C, and later was 
starting off with Dr. White for Blowing 
Rock when the heart attack occurred. She 

had sent a check for our Pergola restora- 
tion, and he sent another in her memory. 
We thank Dr. White for his thoughtful- 

Marie Shore and I have worked closely 
with Mr. White, assistant to the President, 
who is supervising this repair work for us. 
I have turned over the S4 15.00 which came 
to me, and Mr. White says the College 
will pay the additional cost. The twelve con- 
tributors to date are: Ruby Ray Cunning- 
ham, Nannie and Agnes Dodson, Lola 
Doub Gary, Frances Doub Rainey, Olivia 
Miller, Theo Terrell Graham, Esther Bain 
White (and Dr. White), Lucille William- 
son Withers, Cornelia Elliott Lukins, Har- 
riet Glover Burfoot and Marie Shore. 

News included with checks: 

Theo's son, Major Irwin Graham, of the 
Air Force, his wife and three children are 
in Japan for three years. She hopes to 
visit them there. 

Olivia and her mother are still in Jack- 
sonville, Fla. She is in educational work. 

Lola, retired, is so busy with family. 
Church, social, civic and club activities her 
husband wonders how she ever had time 
to teach school. Frances is still secretary 
of our Civic Music Association . . . Nannie 
and I are involved with Church, music club 
and patriotic organizations. 

Cornelia Elliott told of major surgery 
last summer, but is now driving her car 
and on the go in Louisville, Ky. 

Sorry that we did not hear from Mary 
Hege Starr or Laura DeVane Plosser. Love 
to all the Class of '16. 

From Ruby and John Cunningham's 
Christmas letter: After 46 years in the 
blessed ministry of Christ (and 41 to- 
gether), Dr. C. will retire in March, 1964. 
Blessed with good health, four children 
happily married, ten grandchildren and 
many loyal friends, we will travel and visit 
and continue to minister where needed. We 
will live in our Charlotte home and I shall 
continue as chairman of the Mayor's Com- 
mittee on Community Relations.

Dear "You-all": 

After pondering for a year, I decided to 
stop being an "orphan" in Maryland (and, 
that's what I was, in spite of being sur- 
rounded by dear friends ) , and came to my 
mother's home town to live — where I 
have a number of relatives and old friends. 
Oxford has quite a bit of Deep South 
charm, the university adds interest, and I 
believe I shall find contentment here. I 
was delighted to find a Salem alumna — 
Catherine Gregory Barnhart '48 — who is 
teaching at "Ole Miss." Whenever even 
two are gathered together in the name of 
Salem, an Alumnae Assn. is born! 

Such a delightful Christmas card came 
from "Katy" Howard — a drawing of their 
133-year-old farmhouse, "Blueberry Hill," 
near Goshen, N. H., which has been in 
the Howard family since 1905. Her official 
address, however, is 124 Beacon Street, 
Boston. Her son Herbert with wife and 
daughter are in Moscow for some months. 
He is with the U. S. Information Agency 
and speaks Russian fluently. 

Louise Wilkinson had a second success- 
ful cataract operation at Duke, and while 
recuperating spent Christmas with her sis- 
ter in Raleigh. Mary Denny celebrated 
Thanksgiving with Clyde Shore Griffin's 
family in Durham, and she and Clyde 
visited "Luisy" in the hospital and talked 
themselves hoarse! Clyde's son Bill, who 
teaches at the Episcopal Seminary in Se- 
wanee, was married in August. 

Buddie Hearne Nicholson has many 
friends and interests in Albemarle and 
Gastonia. She enjoyed the "Bridge-Theatre 
Train" to New York last fall to see the 
new plays. 

Lillian Cornish Jones with sister and 
husbands had an extensive European trip 
recently. Highlights were the Mozart Fes- 
tival in Salzburg, and operas in Vienna 
and Berlin. 

Helen Wood Beal is happy over a sec- 
ond grandson named for husband Hugh, 
and sad over the death of her brother. 
Brig. Gen. John E. Wood. 

Now that I am back in the groove for 
reporting, please send me your news to

notes news of Mary Cash). After 37 years 
as organist at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 
Mary resigned this post but continues her 
excellent teaching as a member of Salem's 
music faculty. 

Katherine Davis Dermoid had a "won- 
derful experience last summer working with 
the Provincial Committee of the Moravian 
Church, South, on Music, Ritual and Cus- 
toms. Moravian Music Week was inspir- 
ing. The work with the children, the 
seminar with the directors and the Sing- 
stunde will always be remembered by me." 

Mary Feimster Owen is happy that her 
granddaughter is preparing for Salem en- 
trance. Mary hopes to be retired by our 
50th Reunion in 1968. 

Henrietta Wilson Holland wrote a newsy 
letter. She is doing some coaching and 
will spend part of the winter with her 
sister in St. Petersburg, Fla. 

Our sympathy and love go out to Sue 
Campbell Watts, who lost her eldest son, 
Atwell, Jr. of Atlanta, in October. We are 
also thinking of Helen Long FoUett in the 
loss of her brother in an auto accident in 
November. (Their addresses are in your

Reunion — May 30, 1964 

Our sympathy and affection to President 
Eleanor Shaffner Guthrie in the sudden 
death just before Thanksgiving of her hus- 
band, and to Elizabeth Stroud Ashby in the 
sudden death of her husband before Christ- 
mas. We particularly remember Ed and 
Charles at our last Class Reunion. Our 
sympathy goes, also, to Maty and 'Vernon 
Lassiter in the loss of his mother just be- 
fore New Year. 

Christmas brought welcome news from 
many of you. Dr. Sarah Herndon, 1306 
Betton Road, Tallahassee, Fla., reports that 
thanks to the tri-mester system, she will 
be free from April 15 to June 15 — just 
the right time for our 40th Class Reunion.

Catherine lives in Washington, we often 
exchange news by telephone. There was 
news from Gladys Sills Howe, Rochester, 
N. Y., who was entertaining two small 
grandsons and nurse while their parents 
were in Europe. 

Christmas for me, spent in Charlotte 
with Sister Laura and in Salem, was beauti- 
ful and meaningful. Coming from the 
kaleidoscopic world of Washington, I was 
touched by the quiet orderliness of Love- 
feast in Home Church and by the presence 
of Bishop Pfohl, who has presided through 
most of the years of my life. Returning 
home, I was touched in an entirely dif- 
ferent way by something that produced 
acute allergic dermatitis. So this report, for 
once, is mailed relatively on time.

Our energetic class president, Ruth 
Brown Tilton, has this to say about our 
Memofial Scholarship Fund: "I'm hoping 
the response received to our S 1,000.00 
goal will be in proportion to the energy 
expended in getting letters out to 74 class- 
mates ... 35 to grads and 39 to non- 
grads. We need about S700 to realize our 
goal. A payment of $15.00 per person 
would make it, or two payments of S7.50 
each. Sounds possible, doesn't it? Our suc- 
cess in this project depends upon YOU."

to our Memorial Scholarship which have 
been paid to me. In 1961, $72.75 from 
26 persons ... in 1962, $52.75 from 19 
... in 1963 $171.50 from 16. The total 

of S297 in three years is about one-third 
of our goal. 

"The larger amount in 1963 — from 
fewer donors — makes a good showing. I 
hope to have a favorable record when 
bringing the final report and money to 
our next reunion. 

"Thank you for your gifts. Let's show 
our gratitude for good health by making 
the 1964 total an excellent one. Let's con- 
sider it a privilege, not a duty, to establish 
this Scholarship at Salem. Please send your 
check to me soon at 783 E. Linville Road, 
Mount Airy, N. C."

who haven't, I'm still waiting hopefully. I 
had fun reading your newsy cards, and nice 
surprises from some silent since 1951. I 
received 35 replies, or about 50%. Five

what has happened to Louise Hecht, Daniel

Salem Chair Prices To Increase On April I, 1964 

However, orders received at Salem BY MARCH 25th — in time to transmit to the factory — will be filled at the current 
prices of $18.00 for Lady's Chair and $28.00 for Adult Arm Chair. 

April 1, 1964 a $2.00 increase goes into effect on each style chair. New prices will be $20.00 for Lady's Chair and 
$30.00 for Arm Chair. New prices are still much less than the usual retail prices for these chairs, which are decorated with 
the distinctive Salem College Seal. 

The manufacturer, who started the idea of alumnae associations acting as agents in transmitting orders and receiving 
a profit for their work and advertisement, has to increase his wholesale prices; hence our necessary new prices as of 
April 1, 1964.

Symposium At Salem 


Dr. Inzar Byers, Chairman 

Spring is a time of excitement and expectation, certainly 
within a woman's college. This year Salem College wel- 
comes April with more than the usual stir of great ex- 
pectation. At noon on April I6th, the diverse activities 
of the liberal arts program of Salem will come to a halt. 
And for three days, April l6-18th, students and faculty 
will unite in a common intellectual enterprise, appraisal 
of the problem "Communicatio.i in the Arts in the 20th 
Century. " 

Although Robert Frost has celebrated the significance 
of two roads which diverged in a wood, for the Salem 
Symposium it was two roads which converged last spring 
which have made the difference. The first was a line of 
student interest stretching back over several years, an in- 
terest which reached the point of active promotion in 
1962- 1963. The second line was faculty concern which 
crystallized the same year. On the recommendation of an 
exploratory committee of students and faculty, the faculty 
voted last spring to propose a symposium for 1963-1964 
if feasible. On April l6th, the dream will become reality. 

The three areas of the arts singled out for concentration 
are music, drama, and art; each is an area which has seen 
dramatic changes in the concept of communication since 
this century began. To set the stage for the discussion of 
the specific problems of the three areas, Dr. Robert Sit- 
ton of the philosophy department of the University of 
North Carolina, will open the Symposium. He will discuss 
the basic problem of Aesthetics and Communication. To 
stimulate critical interest in the problems of each area, 
Salem has sought the views of men actively concerned 
with the problems. The speakers are: artist Ad Reinhart, 
composer Ian Hamilton, and drama critic Richard Gil- 
man. Each will deliver one formal lecture, will participate 
informally in small faculty-student discussion groups, and 
will take part in a concluding panel moderated by Dr. 
Mary Hill, chairman of the department of Religion and 
Philosophy at Salem College. 

Since one primary objective of the Symposium is to 
bring students and faculty from various disciplines into 
dialogue on a common topic, the Symposium is not de- 
signed to be a passive listening experience. In the month 
prior to the Symposium, a reading list has been circulated. 
Four books are recommended as basis for discussion, and 
the list includes a number of supplementary readings to 
encourage study in depth of particular topics. During the 
Symposium fifteen discussion groups, each with a student 
chairman, will be meeting at intervals to discuss the 

Dr. Byers, Ph.D. Radclifje College, is 
head of the History Department at 

specific views of the lecturers in the light of the general 
problems of the areas involved. 

In addition to the lectures, there will be an art exhibit 
featuring work of outstanding contemporary artists. The 
Pierrette Players will present a play representative of the 
Theatre of the Absurd, lonesco's The Chairs. Five faculty 
members of the School of Music will participate in an all- 
Hindemith program: Eugene Jacobowsky, Clemens San- 
dresky, Betty Crossley, Nancy Wurtele, and Richard 

Because of the limitations of seating capacity, the Sym- 
posium Committee has decided not to promote general out- 
side attendance. However, it has been agreed that ten 
minutes prior to each of the four lectures, the doors of 
Memorial Hall will be open to interested outsiders on a 
first-come, first-served basis for the remaining unoccupied 
seats. The other parts of the Symposium will not be opened 
to the public. 

Salem approaches its Symposium with expectation and 
curiosity. Whatever the problems of communication in the 
arts may prove to be, the college hopes that the opportunity 
of increased communication within the academic com- 
munity itself may be fully realized. 

THE LIBRARY, in preparation for the April Sympo- 
sium at Salem on Communication Through The Arts in the 
20th Century has prepared a bibliography of 95 titles in 
general reading and specific books on art, drama and music. 
A copy of this bibliography will be sent to alumnae on 
request to the Salem College Library. 

Theatre of the Absurd 


Assistant Professor of English and Director of Dramatics 

Perhaps the most significant drama to emerge since 
World War II — and, thus, the drama which responds 
most acutely to the problems of communication in the 
mid-twentieth century — is the so-called "Theatre of the 
Absurd." Of the playwrights associated with this move- 
ment, one of the most representative is the French dra- 
matist, Eugene lonesco; and it is his play, "The Chairs," 
which The Pierrette Players will present in April in con- 
junction with the first Salem College Symposium. 

The absurdity in this theater stems from a belief in 
the absurdity of "the human condition itself in a world 
where the decline of religious belief has deprived man 
of certainties."^ The dramatist of the Absurd does not 
attempt to explain this condition or the world which 
creates it; instead, he presents the moment — isolated, 
precise, significant — at which man comes in direct con- 
tact with the meaninglessness of existence. Therefore, he 
creates "in anxiety or with derision, an individual human 
being's intuition of the ultimate realities as he experiences 
them; the fruits of one man's descent into the depths of 
his personality, his dreams, fantasies, and nightmares."- 
These plays, which are then both personal and universal, 
are frankly theatrical as opposed to realistic; they force the 
audience to orient itself to a new form of dramatic ap- 
preciation and analysis. lonesco himself has said that the 
plays "magnify those aspects of human behavior which 
are normally observed through nuances only . . . They are 
projections onto the stage of internal and obscure desires, 
anxieties, contradictions. They are realized psychic con- 
flicts or realized dreams."^ Consequently, each member 
of the audience must individually "think beyond" what 
is seen on the stage and grasp the meaning of the play 
from his or her own sub-conscious or conscious mind. 

In spite of the highly personal nature of the plays, how- 
ever, certain similarities are apparent. Generally, these 
plays are built on situation rather than on a sequence of 
events; they are almost totally void of theme or plot devel- 
opment. They are usually confined to one act, one locale, 
and thus they isolate the characters and the audience in 
the same static world, which is relatively constant, unified, 
and without development on the part of its inhabitants. 

Furthermore, say the dramatists, language in our absurd

world is never really adequate. Language shapes communi- 
cation and may actually impede it, for ir is based on a 
logical system of grammar and a relatively clearly cut 
symbolism.""' Consequently, there is often a total disin- 
tegration of language, as when the language of "The 
Chairs " becomes gibberish or when rhe audience becomes 
aware of a peculiar juxtaposition of trivial and familiar 
phrases. Bur this disintegration does not mean that the 
"Theatre of the Absurd" is non-verbal. On the contrary, 
by using language as a tool to satirically attack the cliches 
which have encumbered reality, this theatre strives in the 
manner of poetic stage language to go beyond "naturalistic 
tape-recorder" dialogue to the suggestion of a deeper 

A third similarity is found in the revolt against psychol- 
ogy. For the playwright of the Absurd, psychology, analyti- 
cal or experimental, represents a scientific attempt to find 

— or ro create — form, order, and, consequently, pre- 
dictability in human behavior. In their revolt against this 
categorization, the Absurdists endeavour to "communicate 
the metaphysical experience behind the scientific attitude, 
and at the same time, to supplement it by rounding off 
the partial view of the world it presents, and integrating 
it in a wider vision of the world and its mystery.""' 

Finally, these dramatists inflict their characters with 
a kind of ontological loneliness, a loneliness which must 
be encountered by every man who penetrares the facade 
which society has helped him to create. The theme of 
loneliness is certainly not a new one, but its existence 
as an inevitable, inescapable part of reality is perhaps more 
penetraringly presented in these plays. 

Each of the above characteristics is applicable to "The 
Chairs." This long one-act play filled with numerous pauses 
and ceaseless repetitions concerns primarily two people, 
an old man of ninety-five and his wife, ninety-four. They 
live in a lighthouse surrounded by stagnant water, and 
they are bored. Night after night they relive the past un- 
til their accounts are hopelessly confused and fragmentary. 
AH that remains is a muddled mixture of trivialiry and 
sensuality. But on this particular night they are awaiting 
the arrival of an Orator, who will deliver rhe Old Man's 
message to humanity. There is to be a large, formal garh- 
ering; everyone will be there: the Emperor, the prolera- 
rians, rhe revolutionaries, the alienists, the alienated. 

As the guests — who have no physical existence at all — 
begin to arrive, the old couple filled the stage with chairs 

— visibly empty chairs — until the audience senses an 
apparent coexistence of emptiness and excessive abund- 
ance. As these imaginary people "fill" the room, the 
couple are pushed further and further apart, and when 
each commits suicide they are together only in the perform- 
ance of the act.

She Used to Be" 

by Anna Cooper. Librarian 

"Yes, the New York Times index is unreasonably slow 
in getting here. Have you tried the Readers Guide? It is 
more uptodate." 

"Do you want all five of these magazines now.' We close 
in fifteen minutes." 

"No, you can't have these books renewed a second time. 
Some one else may be waiting for them." 

"I am sorry, we do not lend to Wake Forest students. 
Our agreement with Wake Forest Library is not to lend

Check for closing: put away encyclopedias, clear tables 
of books, remove Coca-Cola cups and candy papers, turn 
off lights switch and wait for squeals from the Listening 

As the weary librarian finally turns the key in the door, 
the old refrain pops into her head, "This old library, she 
ain't what she used to be . . ." 


(Continued from Page Four) 

Following the double suicide, the Orator — who is the 
only other "real" person — turns to the imaginary audi- 
ence and attempts to deliver the Old Man's message, but 
all that is heard are "coughs, groans, the gutteral sounds of 
a mute." Unable to communicate the message, he leaves; 
and gradually, the audience hears the sounds of the invis- 
ible crowd — murmurs, bursts of laughter, and "ironical 
coughs" — then, silence. "If the theme of 'The Chairs'," 
wrote lonesco before its first production, "is ontological 
emptiness or absence, it is, I think, the expression of this 
absence which must constitute the last definitive movement 
of the play ... At this moment the audience will have 
under their eyes . . . the empty chairs in an empty set 
ornamented by streamers, full of useless confetti, which 
will leave them with a sadness like that of an empty ball- 
room after the ball . . ."•> 

This is lonesco's big joke, his farcical tragedy: that 
in the end, the silence of the universe closes upon the 
absence of humanity. 

No, it is not. In the 'good old days' an afternoon at the 
desk meant a quiet time to catch up on odd jobs, revise 
catalog cards, and search for information needed to cata- 
log records. Now there is something doing all the time. 
The card catalog is in constant use. Students from other 
schools and colleges make the reading room and study 
areas look like a co-educational college. We used to be busy 
at certain periods, notably the night before an examination. 
Now, we are busy most of the time. 

Seriously, we try to think out the reasons for this change. 
Could it be that our present students have a higher I.Q. 
than those in the past? Are they better prepared academ- 
ically and have a more definite purpose in their college 
work? We know they are more familiar with library ma- 
terials and practices and can get aroimd better library- 
wise. Is the faculty demanding more work? The students 
will certainly answer "yes." Do honor's work and indi- 
vidual assignments require more library materials than the 
old fashioned text and supplementary readings, with the 
books conveniently placed on reserve? 

All of these reasons enter the picture. Students are bet- 
ter prepared and are more highly selected than formerly. 
A place in a first class college is now an honor and one to 
be worked for and respected. Also, students come from 
high schools which have better libraries and they have 
learned to use them. 

Perhaps the most important reason for this increased 
activity is the present emphasis on individual work, with 
the students finding their own materials, and the educa- 
tional emphasis on reading from many books rather than a 
selected text. While books are the main form of present- 
ing facts and ideas, other means of presentation are now 
enriching the educational program. These take the form 
of recording, film, and micro print. The number of vol- 
umes of the back files of periodicals that are replaced 
on the shelves daily attest to the use of this modern form 
of publishing. 

The library takes pleasure in this increased activity. We 
are keeping step with the demand, and doing what comes 
naturally to a library — supporting the college instruc- 
tional program by supplying the students with the ma- 
terials which will help them develop into intelligent and 
useful citizens. 

What's New in Mathematics?. . . 


In recent years many changes have taken place 
in the field of mathematics in subject matter con- 
tent and its application and also in the realization 
of the importance of mathematics in our contem- 
porary culture and civilization. 

Such topics as sets, groups, rings, fields and 
matrices have recently sifted down to the early 
college level of mathematics, and even to the 
grade school level in some cases. Some of these 
systems are comparatively new and all were in the 
upper college level a few years ago. Two things 
have brought about this change. Students are ad- 
vancing more rapidly in high school and early 
college work; and a more elementary approach 
has been given to these subjects. 

Another change in mathematics is the empha- 
sis on its logical development. Each topic or unit 
must be developed by rigorous deductive logic 
from what has been previously learned which, in 
turn, is eventually based on a set of basic assump- 
tions of axioms. It is this structure that makes 
mathematics excellent training in deductive logic. 
The pursuit of this rigor results in what is known 
as a mathematically trained mind. 

The third major change relative to the field of 
mathematics is the increased interest in all levels 
of study. This is probably caused by the realiza- 
tion of its great importance in engineering, in- 
dustry and scientific pursuits. 

Salem College graduates in mathematics have 
been doing and are still doing an excellent job of 
teaching mathematics in various places. We would 
welcome letters from such teachers telling us where 
and what they teach, as this desired information 
is not up to date in the alumnae files. 

The descriptions of the jobs printed in this 
Bulletin are from graduates of the past two years 
who have accepted employment in industry as a 
result of their mathematical training at Salem. 


I am with RCA at Cape Canaveral-Kennedy, or spe- 
cifically down the road from the Cape, as I work at the 
Tech Lab on Patrick Air Force Base. I confess that I 
haven't yet been inside the Cape's gate, even on a Sunday 
drive-through tour, although I am a part of the Missile 
Test Project. 

My job title is mathematician and I program for the 
IBM 7090, working mainly with programs for ballistic 
camera. ( Haven't gotten one to start coding from scratch 
and call my very own yet. ) 

Every step is broken down for different departments. 

The 'units " are departments which use raw data collected 
from a test and put in the rig'.it form to go in a program. 
This is run and the results are often put through other 
programs until the contractor ( maker of the missile ) can 
be given the information he requested. 

When something new is required the request goes to 
an analyst, who works out the mathematics, or what is 
needed to base a program on. Each analyst has a specialty 
such as radar, range safety, antennae patterns, etc. When 
the problem has been solved, it goes to a programmer, who 
figures out the best way to carry out the analyst's solu- 
tion and codes it for the computer. 

Then comes the long process of seeing that the pro- 
gram does all that it is supposed to and can take care of 
as many as possible of the strange situations that are sure 
to arise. Usually the programm;r knows something about 
what is needed as each, like the analyst, has a particular 
field. When the program is ready for use, it is "released" 
and sent back to the "units" for use. 


I love my work at the Life Insurance Company of 
Virginia in Richmond. My title is a research assistant. 
Pension Actuarial Division. Three-fourths of my time is 
spent working on special projects for my boss, an actuary, 
and the other fourth on pension reserves. Our latest proj- 
ect is a Virginia-North Carolina health insurance pro- 
gram for people over sixty-five. I do much programming 
for the IBM 1620 — a "baby" as far as machines go — 
and most of my programs are small, research ones. But 
it's fun and a great challenge to figure out how to tell 
that hunk of metal to do what you want it to. Sometimes 
— especially when it points out the errors in my instruc- 
tions — I think 1620 is smarter than I am. 

Now that I have worked for two years, I am not sure 
what I had in mind in my senior year when I said I wanted 
a job in the business world where I could "use my math." 
I certainly do not spend my time working calculus prob- 
lems, but I am convinced that it takes a math major to 
do justice to the job. An actuary deals in probabilities and 
statistics — and while he does the major part of the work 
in solving the complicated formulas — a thorough under- 
standing of these areas is essential to any actuarial assis- 
tant. The work requires an analytical understanding of 
numbers, a knowledge of what to expect when certain 
steps are taken, and the ability to take a figure and say: 
I did this and that and thus-and-so should happen, so my 
result looks reasonable. Math is essential, of course, in pro- 

If one wants to be an actuary ( which at present I do 
not ) , it takes two tests a year for eight to ten years to 
become a full actuary. The first tests are on math, the 
rest on insurance. I do enjoy, however, giving the practice 
exams to the actuarial students in the office, though I 
haven't dared to attempt them myself. I did take an eve- 
ning course in Probability and Statistics at the University 
of Richmond last spring. 

Recent Graduates Give Answers 


I am working at Wachovia Bank in Winston-Salem in 
the loan and investment division. I am a research assistant 
and work mainly with statistics and economics. We keep 
files of information on banking, agriculture, industry, and 
economy for the nation, the states of the Southeast, and 
especially North Carolina. From this information I com- 
pile statistics for various research projects. 

The Wachovia Business Index is one particular project 
on which I work! We compute indexes of economic activ- 
ity for North Carolina, South Carolina, and the Southeast. 
These indexes are measures of personal income based on 
bank debits, non-agricultural employment and cash re- 
ceipts from farm marketings. These components are sea- 
sonally adjusted, and adjusted for price fluctuations, and 
irregular movements are taken out. These are then con- 
verted to indexes with the base 1957-1959 equals 100. 
A multiple regression equation, taking the years 1947 
forward, is then used to compute the final index. 

Records by the month are also kept in order to forecast 
funds for bank use and other projects. I am never bored 
as there is continuous variety in my work.

I am with International Business Machines and spent 
three months last fall in the Atlanta office in Phase I 
of training program for prospective systems engineers. 
From there I was assigned to "out in the field" work in 

A systems engineer does not program computers — at 
least not all day. We design systems of computers or of 
record machines. Initial training does not encompass com- 
puters, only unit record equipment, such as accounting 
machines, calculators, card sorters and collators — strictly 
punched card ( "unit record" ) equipment. These machines 
are not "programmed" in the literal sense; they are in- 
structed by control panels which are wired. In Phase I we 
learned to wire the control panels and had lectures on ap- 
plications in the business world — such as running pay- 
roll, accounts payable and receivable, inventory control, job 
casting, etc. After several months I am an "expert" on 
payroll and fairly knowledgeable about other applications. 

The main object of a systems engineer is to design 
a system for putting ( or doing ) commercial or scientific 
applications on the machines. I hope to have formal train- 
ing this summer on computers about which I have an end- 
less curiosity. Meantime, I have been taking "Programmed 
Instructions" — self-study courses on computer mathema- 
tics. Fortunately I have found the ones in Binary and in 
Floating Point Arithmetic quite easy, as a math major 
should! The different machine languages are fascinating, 
as is the whole idea of computers. I love the logic in- 

I was surprised to learn that only a few IBM engineers 
are mathematicians. The range of knowledge and back- 
grounds is fantastic. It runs from electrical and industrial 
engineers to sociologists and economists, to chemists and 
physicists, to occasional musicians. Some logical ability is 
all that is required, and the variety is the thing that makes 
the work so fascinating. One is not only encouraged but 
expected to pick up some knowledge of every possible 
subject to be encountered in serving the business and 
scientific worlds, as well as choosing a field in which to 
become an expert. Few companies could present such a 

A systems engineer is trained to have more than aver- 
age knowledge in some particular field. This could be on 
some one computer system, on a particular application. 
For instance, the retail merchandise business, whether it 
be specializing in a type of industry or a particular account- 
ing function. As applied to the average commercial job, 
we are merely high-speed accountants. There are so many 
ways to utilize data-processing machines; practically any- 
thing the human mind can do that follows any logical 
processes of thought can be done infinitely faster and 
more accurately on this equipment. It applies to every- 
thing from figuring income taxes on a payroll procedure 
to analyzing a chemical production system to plotting the 
orbits of missiles. In IBM there are people who are experts 
in all of these areas; the technical knowledge of my fellow 
employees is quite impressive. 

Anyone who enjoys analytical, logical thought and work 
can find a place for himself.

THE FEMININE MYSTIQUE. Friedan, Betty. New York, 
W. W. Norton, 1963. 15.95. 
Are wives women? This is the caption of an article in 
an old copy of the now defunct Delineator magazine. 
Even in 1916, some people were questioning the role of 
the housewife. Was she trapped in a routine of housework, 
with never a chance to develop her intellectual powers.' 

More modern authors have asked the same question. A 
hard-hitting book is The Feminine Mystique by Betty 
Friedan, a wife, mother of three children, free-lance 
writer, and a clinical psychologist. The mystique she 
analyzes so devastatingly is that rationale which asserts 
that anatomy is destiny and indentity is determined by 
biology. Woman is viewed not as a person but as a func- 
tion — a marriage partner, a protective parent, a home- 
maker, and a buyer of products of American industry. 

In her book, Mrs. Friedan traces the rise of feminism in 
America, briefly outlining the fight for the right to speak, 
the right to be educated, the right to vote which emanci- 
pated American women. She discusses the Freudian thought 
that has so permeated our sociology, anthropology, educa- 
tion and even history that women find themselves back in 
the house again, caught in a maze of bigger and better 
household gadgets. Freud, Mrs. Friedan contends, believed 
women inferior by God-given, irrevocable nature, and his 
followers have helped along this image. Now, Mrs. Friedan 
claims, the supposedly happy housewife is asking, "Where 
am I? What am I doing here? Is this all there is?" Ameri- 
can industry, hand in hand with American advertisers, are 
conspiring to keep the woman at home even though she 
is buying more and more appliances to give her more and 
more free time. Mrs. Friedan has much to say about over- 
protection of the children of these trapped housewives. She 
discusses marriages which are occurring at younger and 
younger ages with less and less chance for education for 
the woman, and she documents most of her assertions with 
case histories. It makes interesting reading. The book also 
serves to stifle a feeling of guilt on the part of those of 
us who work because we have to and not because we want 
to — a feeling that we may have been neglecting our 
families by not serving homemade bread, waxing the floors 
twice a week, and spreading "togetherness" around. Ac- 
cording to Mrs. Friedan, our children may be sturdier, 
our husbands happier, because we are out of, and not in, 
our homes all day. 

THE CREATIVE WOMAN by Dorothy Goldberg is 
not a profound book, but it is a comforting one. What 
Mrs. Goldberg advocates is the saving of a little energy 
for that other life within us, that urge to make, to do, to 
try to create. She interprets creativity as a desire to serve, 
to give oneself to the cause of preserving a free society, 
as well as the desire to be a true creative artist. 

The creative urge, she says, the inner life, must be given 
time as another child would have to have time. If you 
have three children, pretend you have four — and give 
this amount of time for understanding yourself, your needs 
and your potential. 

Mrs. Goldberg, the wife of Justice Arthur Goldberg of 
the Supreme Court, and an artist in her own right, devotes 
some pages of just how to find time when none seemingly 
exists. She discusses the routines of homemaking, the 
struggle (and she uses this word) of making yourself be- 
lieve you can begin — and do — whatever it is you really 
want to do, and the necessity of accepting the limitations 
and circumstances without frustration. Much of her book 
is concerned with art and with the self-discipline it 
takes for a woman to become a creative artist. She also 
discusses the problem of aging and the necessity for pre- 
paring for an interest or work beyond the employment age. 

The second part of her book is entitled "An Artist's 
Credo." In this section, Mrs. Goldberg discusses the artist- 
craftsman and his involvement in a free society, his re- 
sponsibility to share his joy in his work and to persevere 
in his stretch toward new frontiers. She has much to say 
about volunteer services from the woman who knows 
what she can do best and is willing to do it for what Mrs. 
Goldberg calls the survival of our free society. Giving of 
yourself she terms the highest form of creativity — and 
this is really her message in The Creative Woman, 

TEACHER. Ashton-Warner, Sylvia, New York, Simon and 
Schuster, 1963. S5.00. 

A delightful book for all who love or work with chil- 
dren is Sylvia Ashton-Warner's TEACHER. It is filled 
with the terminology of the New Zealand schoolroom. 

Miss Ashton-Warner is Mrs. Henderson, wife of the 
headmaster of the Fernhill School, and herself ex-basket- 
ball coach, playground supervisor, piano instructor, and 
teacher for the "infant room." 

For 24 years she taught in this infant room filled with 
five to seven year olds of both the white and Maori, or 
Polynesian, races. Her peculiar problem was to help a 
Maori child cross the bridge from his aboriginal back- 
ground into the European culture. "The Maori five year 
old," she writes, "arrives with no other thought in his 
head than to take, break, fight, and be first." 

She believes that the first word a child learns to read 
must be a word that is already a part of his being — such 
words as kiss, frightened, ghost. Mummy, Daddy, jet, bomb, 
house. The key words, she says, center around the two 
main instincts, fear and sex. Backward readers have a 
private key vocabulary which once found launches them 
into reading, and much of her book is a discussion of how 
she went about discovering these "key" words. Her 
methods of having the children help each other she de- 
scribes in detail. 

She believes that destructiveness in a child is propor- 
tionate to the amount to which expansiveness of his life 
has been curtailed, and the chance to be creative she sees 
as a final solution to the problem of war. There is much 
in this book to stimulate thought as well as much to de- 

The Business of Books 

By Becky Boswell, '63 

The book publishing business and New York City are 
magnet and Mecca for many recent college graduates who 
aspire to breathe the rarefied atmosphere of the literary 
world — in a word, get into the publishing business by 
hook or crook. Many persons have written their impres- 
sions of the business of making and marketing books, and 
now here are mine. Our alumna secretary. Miss Marsh, 
believing that every Salem alumna is happy to assist anoth- 
er, had suggested that I ask Carolyn Taylor Anthony, '49, 
director of publicity for David McKay Company, Inc., 
publishers, for advice on job seeking, and my interview 
with her resulted in my being her assistant. My purpose 
in writing this sketch is to be Boswell to my patron 

We shared the publicity department office until the 
firm moved recently into larger quarters on the East side 
of Manhattan. Mrs. Anthony now has a carpeted room of 
her own, with a view, which she says is due to seniority 
and her declining years, but I say is a reward for her tal- 
ents. Whatever the reason, we are now segregated and 
communicate through memos and calls of "Becky" pene- 
trating through the wall. 

The things we do here at McKay are a mixture of 
variety and rote. We get much satisfaction in knowing 
that when a McKay book is reviewed in your local paper, 
"we" are behind it, having managed to send the book to 
the right place at the right time and the reviewer has 
read it and enjoyed it. {We prefer not to think about the 
review that is unfavorable.) Reviewers such as Francis 
Brown of the N. Y. Times, Robert Cromie of the Chicago 
Tribune, Richard Kluger of the Herald-Tribune, and 
Barbara Gordon of the Today Show impress me greatly, 
for even I had heard of them before I began working for 
a publisher. Mrs. Anthony calls them Brownie, Bob, Dick, 
and Barbara when they visit the McKay offices. I stick 
to last names and settle for a handshake. However, I prob- 
ably have a record for sending more books to them than 
anyone except the publicity assistants of other publishers. 
Mrs. Anthony is the one who does the difficult part of con- 
vincing them and others that a particular book is worth 
their attention. 

At the moment we aren't having the problem of con- 
vincing anyone that at least one Spring book is worthy of 
attention. 'This is because the book is The Naked Society 
and the author is Vance Packard. It is another case of 
"Vance" by Mrs. Anthony and "Mr. Packard" by Boswell 
— but perhaps I've gained some recognition because he 
calls me "Becky." McKay published his previous books 
also. I must confess I didn't know that when an economics 
assignment at Salem caused me to stay up all one night 
reading The Hidden Persuaders. Nor did I know then that 
it was Mrs. Anthony's publicity that brought the book to 
the attention of the economics department. 

Other things we do include writing biographies about 
authors and news releases about the books for the papers, 

setting up interviews, writing letters to critics, and read- 
ing magazines and newspapers for reviews about our 
books. The last is a job dividend for me, for few people 
get paid for reading Time. Newsweek, The Atlantic, and 
all the others, as well as three N. Y. papers. 

Mrs. Anthony has just walked in with a "let's get to 
work " look. But before I end this lunch hour spent over 
a cup of coffee and a typewriter, I shall have to tell you 
a bit about Mr. Anthony. He has a very pleasant smile, 
almost Southern, it's so nice, and he is in the publishing 
business, too — to be exact, editor of a scientific magazine. 
Their two-year-old son, Robert's, interest in publishing is, 
so far, confined to picture books, I am told. 

Briefly, you have been exposed to Boswell's Life of 
Anthony, or of McKay, or something. At least you can- 
not now say that you have not been exposed to Boswell! 

Easter Legends Retold 

ViRTiE Stroup, '47, religion reporter on the Winston- 
Salem JOURNAL, wrote a series of seven "Legends of 
Easter" which appeared during Holy Week on the first 
page of the paper. These dealt with trees, plants, flowers 
and birds which have a legendary connection with Jesus 
in the week leading to His crucifixion. 

The simplicity of style in which Virtie described these 
legends gave reverence to their retelling and the beautiful 
pictures, by press photographer Frank Jones, added to 
their charm. 

The series should be bound as an Easter booklet, thus 
preserving the research that went into the writing of them. 
Reporter Stroup's contribution to the observance of Holy 
Week in this Easter City was appreciated by readers of 
the Winston-Salem JOURNAL. 

Ne"w Courses 

Nine new courses have been approved by the faculty 
for wider curricula offerings in 1964-65 in three depart- 
ments. These are: 

In Science — two biology courses: genetics and em- 

In Home Economics — three courses: costume design 
and construction, family resources, and advanced clothing. 

In Religion and Philosophy — four courses: early and 
medieval Christianity, Christianity from the Reformation 
to the 20th century, great religious thinkers, and Chris- 
tianity in the 20th century. 

Experiment In International Living 

World Conference in Germany, September, 1963 
By Delegate Ted Wolff Wilson. '21 

The Experiment in International Living is a non-profit, 
educational-travel institution dedicated to fostering mutual 
understanding among the peoples of the world. Founded 
in 1932 by Dr. Donald B. Watt, it has grown from a 
single American group visiting one European country to 
a world-wide organization with representatives from 53 
countries. The most important feature of the Experiment 
program is that each participant lives for a time with a 
family in the country he is visiting. 

Since 1954 Raleigh, North Carolina, has been participat- 
ing in the Experiment, and it has been my privilege to 
serve on the board of directors in some capacity most of 
these years. Therefore, I was delighted when asked by Dr. 
Watt to go to the International Conference at Goslar, 
Germany, in September, 1963. The group left New York 
in late August by chartered plane and returned the last 
of September. 

The first week was in Berlin, where we were royally 
entertained by the city. At a welcoming reception at the 
Information Center, Dr. Von Hartman, minister of publici- 
ty, spoke on Berlin policies, and Mayor Willy Brandt 
was our host and speaker at a luncheon in the Town Hall. 
We were taken on tours of West and East Berlin, to the 
opera, museums and other places of interest. Conditions 
in East Berlin have improved since I was there in 1957. 
There are more shops and eating places, apartments being 
built, and more of the war ruins cleared away. But the 
people still walk the streets with scarcely a smile on their 
faces. In West Berlin the stores are well stocked, the 
food is excellent and there is a spirit of gaiety. The Wall 
barrier, however, is a depressing sight, and it tears one's 
heart to watch the people climb up on the platform on 
the West side to wave and gaze longingly at those on the 
East side. The distance between them is too great for an 
exchange of words. 

From Berlin we flew to Hanover, then went by bus to 
Goslar, a beautiful drive. Goslar is an old walled city at 
the foot of the Harz Mountains, untouched by the war, 
although it is only two miles from the East German border. 
Our first meeting was at the Kaiser-Platz, former home of 
the Kaisers. Bands played and we were greeted by the 
Mayor and other officials, before being divided into study 
group units of twenty-five persons from various coun- 
tries. Each group had a leader and a reporter for the daily 
3'/2-hour morning meeting. 

We were taken on tours in the afternoons, and visited 
the Volkswagen factory, the old town of Brunswick, 70% 
destroyed during the war, but now being rebuilt, and had 
a lovely drive into the Harz Mountains, much of which 
paralleled the Russian Zone border. We took pictures of 
the Russian watch towers and the maze of posts and barbed 
wire separating the two zones. The week ended with a 

wonderful dinner and dance at the Achtaman Hotel and 
a gift for each of us — china candlesticks and flower 
container combination, as a souvenir of our stay in Goslar. 

My next week was the happy "home-stay" with a Ger- 
man family, a planned part of every conference program. 
The Experiment emphasizes that a delegate is neither a 
guest nor a visitor, but an integral part of the family and 
must share fully in the normal family life. I left Goslar 
with Herr Alois Hufuer for his home in Mosbach, a small 
town 40 miles from Heidelberg. His family consisted of 
his wife, Katja, a son Mattias, aged seven, daughter Clau- 
dia, three, and baby Dorothea, three months old. 

We reached Mosbach about 7 p.m. The children were 
eagerly awaiting our arrival with a great deal of curiosity 
about me, which their mother shared. She told me later 
that she consented to take a delegate for a home-stay with 
many misgivings. I only hope that they liked me as much 
as I liked them. They had a modern house, high on the 
mountain side, with a wonderful view. We had frequent 
midday meals and 5 o'clock coffee and cake on the terrace 
looking down on the village below. 

Alois teaches English in the high school. He and his 
family spent a year (1959) in the United States on a Ful- 
bright Fellowship, when he taught German in Tarrytown, 
New York. They also traveled in the U. S. during that 
summer. I shared in the house work, as Katja had no 
help, and especially enjoyed giving the baby her bottle 
and taking Claudia for daily walks up the mountain. This 
was pleasure, not work, but I did wash the dishes after 
most every meal and helped with the housework. We had 
delightful trips around the countryside visiting castles, 
museums and other villages. No matter where we were, we 
stopped for 5 o'clock cake and coffee, with piles of whip- 
ped cream, which did my figure no good at all. 

The children soon changed from "Fraulein Ted" to 
"Auntie Ted." Although they did not speak English, they 
learned the English names of animals and objects in their 
picture books and taught me the German as we played 
the "Was ist das?" game. 

I shall always be grateful for the opportunity of being 
a part of the Experiment in International Living; for 
the fellowship shared with so many delegates from all 
over the world; and for their giving me a broader un- 
derstanding of their problems as well as ours. I am also 
grateful for the privilege of going to both Salem Academy 
and Salem College, which, I am sure, helped prepare 
me for such an experience. 

A poignant incident, which made an indelible impres- 
sion upon me, is shared here.

Teaching the Mentally Handicapped 

"Special Education" for Teacher and Students 
By Sarah Price Whitty, '59 

I have never been a champion of the underdog or of 
the weak in mind or body. While my attitude has not 
been of the "let them eat cake" variety, it was, perhaps, 
the next worst thing and in essence just as deplorable. I 
simply ignored the existence of the mentally handicapped. 

I was aware that many schools provide special classes 
for mentally retarded children but that did not concern 
me. It just meant that I would not have to be bothered 
with having extremely low I.Q. students in my junior 
high English and social studies classes. 

It is ironic, then, that when we came to Chapel Hill in 
September I was offered and accepted a position as teach- 
er of Special Education in the Chapel Hill High School. 

This position was offered to me, I am sure, because 
it was imperative that they hire somebody, and I accepted 
the job for two reasons: I must work while my husband 
is in graduate school; and I was determined to teach, the 
job I most enjoy. 

I was so fortunate to be able to get a position in the 
Chapel Hill Public Schools (a notoriously difficult task, 
particularly for wives of graduate students) that I was 
determined to do my very best despite the handicaps of 
no experience and limited knowledge about the field of 
Special Education. 

I assumed my teaching duties knowing, among a very 
few other things, that I was to have twenty students 
(seven sophomores, seven juniors and six seniors) in age 
range from 15 to 22 years. The class would be partly self- 
contained. That is, I would be teaching language arts, so- 
cial studies and math. I also knew that I would have no 
specific textbooks. Textbooks of any kind are rare or non- 
existent in Special Education, particularly on the high 
school level. I did know that I was to limit my teaching 
strictly to the practical applications of the subject matter. 

This meant, for instance, that even basic grammar could 
not be learned by my students as a background for good 
sentence construction. I must admit, however, I was se- 
cretly positive that, if I were thorough in my teaching and 
very patient, I could help anyone — low I.Q. notwithstand- 
ing to learn at least the five most elementary parts of 

I learned very quickly that this was, indeed, impossible. 
My children simply could not master the abstractions of 
English grammar. I changed my approach and began 
again, as I have done so often in all three of the subjects 
I teach. 

Math and its practical uses have been the least difficult 
for me, probably because I have had less formal training 
in the subject myself. An old Montgomery-Ward cata- 

logue serves as our basic math textbook. And in addition 
to "catalogue" math, my seniors have learned to write 
checks and have mastered the mechanics of balancing a 
checkbook. My girls are now working on problems con- 
cerned with doubling and tripling recipes. 

If my pupils have learned anything from my teaching, 
1 have learned even more about them and about mentally 
retarded children in general from having taught them. 

The most surprising thing I have learned is that they 
have a sincere desire to learn. They will tackle any prob- 
lem with a determination to succeed that is all too rare 
among high school students. One reason for this serious- 
ness of purpose is that, with the exception of two 15-year- 
olds, all of my students are in school because they want 
to be. In fact, several of them come to school despite con- 
stant parental pressure to quit and "start earning a living." 

Because of this desire to learn, I have no discipline 
problems with my class. This is not to say that they do 
not argue with each other and get excited. They certainly 
do. But there is no classroom "hanky-panky" to deal with 
as I often had when I taught regular classes. 

I am often asked if I pity my children for their lack of 
mental ability. I do not. Of course, it is sad that a child- 
hood accident or a very poor environment might cause or 
contribute to mental retardation in children. But as far 
as I am concerned, there is no reason to pity a child's abil- 
ity, or lack of it, when he is aware of his limitations yet 
does his very best. This is the case with the children in my 

I do ache inside for my children because of the treat- 
ment they sometimes receive at the hands of some of the 
regular high school students. These students seem to de- 
light in making them the butt of cruel jokes about their 
mental handicaps. 

Just when my indignation reaches its peak, however, I 
painfully recall my own attitude toward mentally retarded 
children before I became a Special Education teacher. 

I shall especially remember a recent incident when one 
of my boys came with tears in his eyes to tell me that 
he could not go to the Valentine Dance because, he said, 
"I am a spastic." I could not help thinking of all the 
"spastic jokes" I have heard and how amusing I had 
thought they were. Needless to say, those jokes seem very 
un-funny to me now. 

This article has, of necessity, been subjective in nature 
for I still have so much to learn about Special Education. 
But I wanted to share my experiences as a novice in this 
field, and to say that I have found the teaching of mental- 
ly retarded children to be challenging and anything but 


The Glories of Greece 

by Gertrude Bagwell Haney. '39 

John Steinbeck in Travels with Charley said of Wiscon- 
sin that in only one other place is there such a penetration 
of light, and that place is Greece. The uncanny light is the 
most vivid memory of the trip my husband and I took 
last fall to Greece. 

"You went only to Greece?" people ask. Yes, and to a 
small part of it, at that. One week-end found us in Delphi 
and places on the way; another took us to Corinth, 
Olympia, Navplion, Epidhavros, Mycenai. To try to de- 
scribe these places and the islands, would take more space 
than permitted here; so a few random comments follow. 

Roads — Until about five years ago there were no paved 
roads in Greece. Now the major roads are paved, but they 
are as few and far between as the villages. On fairly 
straight sections two cars can meet and pass, tho' we were 
glad when we were on the inside lane. On sharp curves, 
which occur every few hundred feet, only one car at a 
time is possible. We saw a truck and a small car try it; 
the car lost. Broken guard rails were indicative of others 
who had not made it. Great herds of sheep are always 
just around the curve and scattered across the road. Don- 
keys, almost hidden by loads dragging to the ground, are 
also hazards. But the sporting motorist goes full blast 
ahead, and by blast I mean horn as well as motor. In 
Athens, the sport is traffic lights, which are a new innova- 
tion and something to be dared. No traffic laws as we 
know them exist. 

The countryside is rugged, barren, forbidding, yet awe- 
some. How the rural people make their living was more 
than we could see. There is irrigation in some fields, thanks 
to American aid. The olive groves are treasured and many 
are owned cooperatively. Trees are pruned at the forking 
area and it is strange to see a massive ancient trunk 
pruned to a nub with a few wispy twigs sprouting out of 
the top. The mountains disappear into the clouds. It is 
easy to see why they were considered the home of the 
gods. It is easy to think of Zeus living in the heights 
even now. I recall only one mountain with tall stands of 
evergreens, a reminder of by-gone centuries when all the 
mountains were verdure covered. Many houses were built 
of sod or rocks and whitewashed to a dazzling brilliance. 
Most had a low wall around the yard; all had bright 

The older women wore black from head to toe, but the 
young people in the city wore American-style clothes. The 
women do most of the work while the men sit in the 
taverns and discuss matters of importance. Nearly every 
home has its loom, and women even spin and knit as they 

Athens — a city of nearly 2,000,000 people — must be 
the only flat land in all of Greece, and its apartment build- 
ings extend to the edge of the mountains. The city is 
beautiful and clean and spacious in a way. Everything is 
marble and concrete, as wood is very expensive. Any 

American city would covet the buses and their jam-pack- 
ing business. At peak hours it was not unusual to see six 
lanes of buses (going one way) and several blocks long 
loading. We preferred to walk! If we got lost — as we 
did in the market place — we only had to look at the 
Acropolis and a small mountain at the upper edge of the 
city and start climbing to our apartment. The Acropolis 
is much higher and larger than I had imagined. In its 
glory there was no doubt as to its rightful place as the 
greatest thing ever built. It also gave one a strange feeling 
to ramble where Socrates, Plato and St. Paul had walked 
and talked. The Acropolis would be a wonderful place in 
which to linger except for the constant and cold wind. 
Viewing the remaining buildings we wondered if today's 
architects and builders could match the simple, elegant 
beauty that is there. 

On two boat trips of several days each we experienced 
the sudden storms which stir the Aegean Sea. No wonder 
boat traffic stops by November. The smaller islands 
seemed alike in many ways. The ones dependent on tourists 
were bare of bed and board and people, yet beautiful in 
their solitude. All I needed to feel at home was a crusader's 
shield and banner! Kos, where Hippocrates had his school 
of medicine, was different in landscape. It was more beauti- 
ful, with tall cedars and less rugged mountains, but it had 
the heaviest concentration of clamoring hawkers. Patmos, 
quiet and clean, was not so obviously commercialized. Flat 
Delos revealed a ruined civilization deserted of all habita- 
tion. At Mykonos that vainest of birds, "Peter the Pelican," 
posed continuously for picture-seekers. Also at Mykonos 
are the smallest, narrowest streets in which to lose one- 
self. Of Crete, what shall I say without offending.-" Un- 
fortunately, Iraklion was the dirtiest town we saw; every- 
where else had been so clean and white. Here we had a 
downpour of rain which, perhaps, would have spoiled 
any place. 

We found Greek food very good with accent on green 
salads, cheeses, fruit, zucinni and eggplant. Lamb was pre- 
dominant; there was little pork or fish, no beef, no milk, 
no butter. Souvlakia was our favorite dish: bits of Iamb 
on a bamboo skewer and charcoal broiled. We tried squid, 
retsina, metaxa, and brought back some ouzo (aniseed 
brandy ) . Squid is anemic lobster, and retsina is paint 
thinner, as far as I am concerned. The others were good. 

A delightful Salem contact was made with my class- 
mate, Annette McNeely Leight. We had lunch with her 
and husband Ed in their charming home in Psychic, a 
suburb which rises 1,000 feet higher than Athens. Ed, 
chief representative of Reynolds Tobacco Company, was 
transferred from Turkey to Greece last summer. I am sure 
we would not have been served better, or in more beautiful 
surroundings, in the Royal Palace itself. Annette's years 
of collecting in Turkey, plus what she is acquiring in 
Greece, will make her home a treasure museum when they

By Venetia Cox, 11 

The thrill of returning to the Orient and seeing familiar 
faces and places has no equal; so when a friend in the 
Philippines proposed a tour of Southeast Asia, I accepted 
with alacrity. 

We met in Tokyo on November 8th and visited eleven 
countries before parting in Manila on January 28th. Ja- 
pan is busy preparing for the World Olympics; building 
goes on and streets in Tokyo are torn up for widening 
and adding more subways. Cold weather prevailed and 
Mount Fuji, covered with snow, was a wonderful sight 
as we flew so near her. 

In Taiwan and Hong Kong, where we have many form- 
er students, we felt like "VIPS." Photographers and re- 
porters were at the airports and we were very much in 
the headlines. Such a round of parties, entertainments, and 
tours followed, there were few hours for rest. The island 
of Taiwan has developed and improved in every way since 
I was there in 1959; Hong Kong also has grown in spite 
of land and water shortages. 

Our next flight was to Thailand, that wonderful coun- 
try which has never fallen into the hands of a Colonial 
power. Friends and a former Chinese student residing in 
Bangkok, directed us in our sightseeing around the city. 
They also took us to hear Handel's "Messiah" sung by 
a Community Choir, our first bit of Christmas "on 

Trips into the trouble spots of Cambodia and Vietnam 
were not in vain. We saw the ruins of Angkor Wat in 
Cambodia, and enjoyed parts of Saigon in spite of anti- 
foreign demonstrations on the streets. Conditions in both 
of these countries remind me of never-to-be-forgotten 
days in China. 

Beginning with Bangkok we were in summer weather 
on to the end of our trip, so we packed our winter suits 
in the bottom of our suitcases and wished they were back 
in America! To get a plane to North Borneo we had to go 
to Singapore both ways. This gave us the opportunity to 
worship in St. Andrew's Cathedral there the Sundays be- 
fore and after Christmas, where the music was especially 

The former Headmaster of St. Mark's School in Hong 
Kong now works in North Borneo, and we spent our 
Christmas with him. A train trip up into the mountains 
through jungles and rubber plantations brought us to 
Beaufort, a city only 29 miles from the borderline where 
guerilla fighting goes on continually. The climate is tropi- 
cal, so houses are built on stilts with walls open at the 
top for ventilation and protected by long overhanging 
eaves. There are many tribes of aborigines living on this 
island, a paradise for anthropologists. We found them very 
friendly, and the multi-language Christmas services we at- 
tended very impressive. The port of Jesselton is different. 

in that a large section of it has Western-style buildings 
and roads. 

Our next stop was in Sydney, Australia, where we were 
met by former Chinese students and they initiated us into 
the wonders of this land South of the Equator, the land 
of the Kangaroo, the Koala Bear and the Kook-a-burra. 
We celebrated the New Year here very much as we do in 
America, a holiday with a big dinner, only in this case 
it was a Chinese feast. Trips to Mittagong and Melbourne 
showed us more of the countryside and people. 

In Auckland, New Zealand, we stayed with a young 
couple who love their country very deeply and they led 
us to appreciate their government, people, and country- 
side in a way we could not have gotten otherwise. It is a 
land of modest homes, wonderful grazing land, marvelous 
parks with geysers, streams, pools and rainbow trout. The 
Maori people are not segregated, but you do find them 
living in large groups together. 

From here we flew to Manila for a swift tour of some 
of the Philippine Islands. Most of our time was spent on 
Mindinao, the largest in the South. We visited Zamboanga, 
Cotobato, Upi and Davao and found the entire island 
interesting and beautiful. In Zamboanga we looked across 
the Sea toward North Borneo. The people of these two 
islands are of similar origins and friendly. Excitement in 
the hotel was centered around a group of Hollywood actors 
who were there making a movie called "From Hell to 
Borneo." They loaded a van every morning and went out 
into the jungles for the day and looked tired and worn 
when they returned in the evening. 

We visited farms where citrus and other tropical fruits 
grow, also rice and sugarcane. But the most interesting to 
me were the acres and acres of coconut groves and the 
way men climbed to the top of the trees to gather sap 
from the blossoms to make wine. Our hotel in Davao was 
in the middle of a coconut grove and I enjoyed watching 
this interesting process. We also visited a Pearl Farm and 
heard about the profitable industry of cultured pearls, but 
they had none for sale as souvenirs. 

It was appropriate to end our journey on the island of 
Cebu, where Magellan landed and ended his days. We 
flew back to Manila on the 27th of January and I reached 
Los Angeles the evening of the 28th by the calendar only 
three hours after leaving Manila. 


Choral Ensemble in Europe 

by Nancy Hughes. '65 

The Salem College Choral Ensemble will be singing 
in Europe this Summer. This is a calm statement com- 
pared to the excitement and anticipation of the thirty- 
four girls going on the tour. The idea started a year ago 
when we began making plans for our annual tour to 
areas where Moravian Churches are located. In my three 
years at Salem we have sung at all of the Moravian 
Churches in North Carolina, as well as those in New York, 
Pennsylvania and Florida. Someone suggested that we sing 
at the Moravian Churches in Europe, and that was it! 

During the year we have been working diligently to 
finance our dream. But it has been Professor Paul Peter- 
son, our Director, (affectionately known as "Mr. Pete"), 
who has really worked on arrangements for this extensive 
trip. With the aid of Dr. Gramley, of Dr. Gordon Spaugh, 
chairman of the trustees, and Mr. Voir Gilmore of the 
United States Travel Bureau, Mr. Pete has made innumer- 
able plans, which are now definite. 

We will leave on July thirtieth for nearly a month in 
Europe. Prior to that date, the Ensemble group will meet 
at Salem for several days to practice our songs and polish 
our German and French. We will stay at the Academy, 
since the Governor's School will be in its second session 
on the College campus. Miss Alice Litwinchuk, Principal of 
Salem Academy, will be our chaperone and The Reverend 
Clark Thompson, faculty member, will also accompany us. 
He has studied abroad recently and has been most helpful 
in securing as our sponsors a number of his foreign friends. 

We fly to New York where we will board a KLM 
Royal Dutch Airline plane to Amsterdam, and then on to 
London. For many of us who have never flown, this will 
be an exciting start. Our time in England will be spent 
in sightseeing in and around London. We are especially 
lucky to be going this year — the 400th anniversary of 
Shakespeare's birth — as there are special exhibits and 
plays in the Stratford vicinity. 

In Germany we are to give the majority of our concerts. 
We will sing at the Koningsfeld Moravian Church, and 
the congregation is treating us to a picnic in The Black 
Forest. In Koningsfeld we will be housed in the Erdmuth 
Dormitory of a Moravian Girls' School. At Bad Boll we 
are to stay at a Moravian Resort and Health Center. We 
are very fortunate in that we will be entertained in several 
places in the homes of the German Moravian people. We 
are hoping to sing also for the U.S. Armed Forces at several 
bases in Germany. 

During our stay in Switzerland we will have the oppor- 
tunity to attend the Swiss Exposition, which is held every 
twenty-five years, and is similar to a World's Fair. The 
Jungfrau will be another high peak in our travels. 

From Switzerland we return to France and stay in Paris, 
for more sight-seeing and special trips to 'Versailles, Char- 
tres and other famous locales. From Paris we fly back to 
New York. This promises to be an exciting trip, and the 
memories of our "Troubadour Tour" will be a song in our 
hearts for years to come.

Concert May 4th 

The Choral Ensemble will give a benefit performance at 
8:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall on May 4. This concert is 
sponsored by 18 Winston-Salem civic organizations to 
raise money for the general expenses of the Ensemble's 
European trip. The business men think that the Salem 
singers will be a fine advertisement of Winston-Salem in 

A special feature on the program is the Harp Ensemble, 
which will play six numbers. The harpists are Emily Rich- 
ardson Kellam, and Mrs. Hugh Cannon of Raleigh, Ann 
Grovenstein of Maxton, Margaret Waymann and Wendy 
Sacks of Greensboro. 

Mrs. Kellam, who organized the Harp Ensemble, is harp 
instructor at Salem and at East Carolina College. She com- 
mutes between the two colleges. As Emily Richardson she

Salem in 1890 

Notes from a Nonagenarian 

As told to Sarah Thompson Luther, '36 

(About the author) Sarah Thompson Luther — besides 
church and coimnunity work in Bluejield, Va. — is a 
trainer of Arabian horses, which her husband breeds along 
with beef cattle on their 100 acre Fincastle Farm. He is 
also president of three companies, motors, coal and lime- 
stone. They have tivo sons. Rowland, III, and Edwin. Ill, 
currently at University of Va. and William- and Mary Col- 
lege, and a daughter at Salem Academy. 

Can you imagine the thrill that will surge through the 
slight frame of a Salem graduate who returns to Salem 
for the first time in the 74 years that have passed since 
her graduation in 1890? The charm and quick mind of the 
girl of nineteen are still characteristic of the little lady of 
ninety-three, whom I shall have the pleasure of taking 
back to Salem, and I shall be happy to witness her reac- 
tions to the growth and added beauty she will find there. 

It was by happy chance that I met the gracious and 
alert Mrs. John Gilchrist Herndon, widow of a Presbyterian 
minister, now living in the West Virginian Hotel in Blue- 
field, West Virginia. May I tell you some of her memories 
of Salem so that you also may become acquainted with 

As Martha Peirce of Tazewell, Virginia, she attended 
Salem Academy from 1888 to 1890. Prior to coming to 
Salem, she attended a private school sponsored by the 
Presbyterian Church in Wytheville, Virginia. She trans- 
ferred to Salem because of its excellent music department 
and majored in piano, studying under Professor George 
Markgraff, whom she remembers as "a stern German." 
She was scolded one day for lack of preparation, and con- 
sequently the professor placed her in the choral group — 
as punishment, she thought! "I hated every note, even 
though I was singing some lovely contata. I felt like 
Tommy Tucker, having to sing for punishment!" 

She described dormitory life on the fourth floor of Main 
Hall: the curtained alcoves, the feather mattresses on the 
bed, and the lack of heat. Everything was regimented by 
room companies, twenty girls to a group under the super- 
vision of two teachers. They were marched to the base- 
ment of Main Hall for bathroom necessities. Each had a 
niche upstairs for toothbrush, soap and powder, wash 
basin and mug. One night after "lights out" a frolicsome 
girl poked her head through the curtain and whispered 
to another: "Frog, frog, will you come.'" to which came 
the reply: "Yes, by gosh, when the tide comes in." Then 
a very 'mannish-looking' teacher suddenly appeared to ap- 
prehend the culprits, but since no one would admit to the 
sin of whispering, the entire room company was denied 
privileges for weeks. Imagine such discipline! 

Every morning and evening the students were "collected" 

Sarah Thompson Luther, '36 and Martha Peirce Herndon, 
1890 graduate. 

in the room company's living room, where the Bible was 
read to them for half an hour. Martha loved the sound of 
the church bells, which seemed to give her much comfort. 

Dr. Edward Rondthaler and the Reverend John H. 
Clewell were principals of Salem Academy when Martha 
Peirce attended. She recalls young Howard Rondthaler, 
very erect, leading his mother down the aisle of the church, 
and could not believe his baldness in later years, as "he 
had such a handsome suit of hair then." 

As she remembers it, the food was adequate, but not 
at all exotic. The young ladies looked forward to going to 
the dining hall in the mid-afternoon for a snack of fruit, 
"to prevent beri-beri, perhaps." 

There was no dating in those days. The girls were not 
allowed to see a young man from the time they entered 
until they left. However, one daring young lady eloped, 
and the next day the groom sent a message to the Academy 

saying: " is no more; she changed her name 

at the hour of four." Another girl attempted to do the 
same thing, but was caught by the night watchman and 
"sent packing" the next day. 

Martha Peirce and some other girls did not go home 
for Christmas vacation, but stayed at the school. The 
roads were difficult and the distances great in those days. 

Dr. Henry Bahnson was the school physician then, and 
Mrs. Herndon is interested to note that his grandson. Dr. 
Reid Bahnson, is in charge of the aches and pains of the

1889 — Mary Fries Blair, the one living member to cele- 
brate the 75th anniversary of her class' graduation. 
She continued her studies for another year and was 
one of the Eight "Post Graduates" who received 
Bachelor of Arts degrees, first awarded at Salem in 
1890. These first degree recipients in 1890 origi- 
nated the Salem colors of white and gold. An in- 
teresting coincidence is that her daughter, Margaret 
Blair McCuiston, observes her 50th reunion with 
the Class of 1914 on the same date. 

1894 — Carrie Rollins Sevier, president, will represent 
her class on its 70th anniversary, with characteristic 
enthusiasm and devotion to Salem. 

1899 — Bessie Whittington Pfohl, and we hope others 
among the eighteen living graduates, will be wel- 
comed at their 65th reunion. 

1904 — CoRiNNE Baskin Norfleet has invited classmates 
to her "traditional Reunion Houseparty" for their 
60th celebration. 

1909 — Mary Howe Farrow, president, reminds all 
"Naughty Niners" that the class mascot was Dio- 
genes, The Owl, and your presence at 55th Reunion 
will be evidence of wisdom. 

1914 — Pattie Wray Womack Fetzer, president, excuses 
no one from the Golden Anniversary occasion. Hope 
Coolidge is coming from Massachusetts to speak 
for the class.

time to exhibit their Salem Spirit. Attendance is antici-

Fairy Godmother of Tryon Palace 

May Gordon Latham Kellenberger, chairman of 
Tryon Palace Commission, has been engrossed in the 
Palace Restoration since 1951. New Bern's mayor desig- 
nated April 2nd as "Kellenberger Day" honoring her and 
Mr. Kellenberger, who is the treasurer of the Commission. 

The program included the presentation of a book of 
tributes from commission members, and the unveiling of 
portraits of Mr. and Mrs. Kellenberger by artist Joseph 
W. King of Winston-Salem. These are placed in the 
Palace auditorium where is also a portrait of Mrs. Kellen- 
berger's mother, Mrs. James Edwin Latham, financial bene- 
factor of the Palace restoration. Dedication of the Kellen- 
berger Gardens of 18th century English design followed. 

After a commission dinner, a candlelight reception was 
held in the Palace. 

{Mrs. Kellenberger was a music student at Salem and 
is associated with the Class of 1913). 

A "First" for Salem and Princeton 

Mary Faith Carson, '51, is the first woman to be ad- 
mitted to the Doctor of Philosophy program in the De- 
partment of Religion of Princeton University. This recog- 
nition of her scholarly potentialities reflects honor to her 
as an individual and to Salem, her Alma Mater. We are 
proud of our girl from Kingsport, Tennessee, whom we 
called by the nickname of "Squeaky", and we remember 
her fine influence in her four years at Salem. 

After Salem, Mary Faith took a Master's at the Pres- 
byterian School of Christian Education in Richmond, Vir- 
ginia, then served as director of religious education at 
Presbyterian churches in Greenville, S. C. and Chapel Hill, 
N. C. She returned to Richmond for study at Union Theo- 
logical Seminary, from which she received the bachelor of 
divinity degree. She was one of three graduates — and the 
first woman — to be given the Seminary's highest mone- 
tary awards for further theological studies. 

She decided to do some teaching and for the past three 
years (1961-64) has been assistant professor of religion 
at Queens College in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

Salem anticipates that Mary Faith Carson, as first woman 
candidate for a doctorate degree in Religion at Princeton 
University Graduate School, will continue her standard of 
excellence started at Salem. 

Salem Co-eds now Professors 

Dr. Benjamin C. Dunford, Jr. '37, composer as 
well as pianist, has composed a new cantata, "The Promise," 
which had its premiere before Easter at William Carey 
College in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The theme centers on 
the crucifixion of Christ and is written for accompaniment 
by brass and percussion instruments. Dr. Dunford and his 
wife, Nancy Ridenhour Dunford, '46, joined the music 
faculty of the college last fall. They continue to combine 
and share their exceptional talents as a team of duo- 

Wesley Snyder, '50, is on the faculty of Milliken 
Conservatory in Decatur, Illinois, and also active in music 
circles of the city. 

Dr. Norman Jarrard, '50, received his Ph.D in Eng- 
lish from the University of Texas, working under Dr. Wil- 
liam Todd, who was formerly at Salem. Dr. Jarrard is head 
of languages and art at Asheville-Biltmore College in 
North Carolina. 

Dr. George Melville, x'51, Ph.D from Indiana Uni- 
versity, is professor of economics and registrar at Knox 
College in Galesburg, Illinois. His son is a freshman there. 


Salem asks: 

Are Yoii My Fair Lady . . . 

. . . Are You Fair, My Lady? 

How proud Alma Mater would be if she could claim each and every alumna as "My Fair Lady"! But human 
nature being what it is, even in the educated Salem circles, such traits as forgetfulness, carelessness in reading and 
heeding mail from Salem, or lack of interest in the aims of the Alumnae Association add up to a distressingly large 
majority of alumnae, who fail to communicate with Salem. And this is not encouraging to your officers, who strive 
to put into practice the purposes of the Alumnae Association, which are: 

"to foster among the alumnae a spirit of continuing fellowship and service; 
to interpret Salem College to the communities in which they live; 

to promote among alumnae an active interest in the progress and welfare of Salem College; 
and to enable the College to maintain educational and cultural relationships with its alumnae." 

Time was when the most effective medium of publicity was "to tell a woman," but Salem women seem to be on 
a silence strike. Why, we wonder? Lack of satisfactory communication is especially evident in these three areas: the 
Ballot, the Alumnae Fund, and leadership at the local community level. 

The right to vote is a privilege and a responsibility. It should be exercised by college women, capable of con- 
sidering the qualifications of Trustee nominees and deciding on their candidate. The numerical response to the 
March ballot was disappointing. 


The Alumnae Fund has had successively fewer contributors in the past three years. Why has not the number of 
donors increased rather than decreased.-* The Alumnae Association has yearly commitments to Salem College which 
depend upon your continuous support. Why is this support lessening? 


Salem College is interpreted and judged in your home town by you, its product. Your action, or lack of action, 
reflects favorably or unfavorably upon your Alma Mater. If the individual alumna refrains from leadership for Sa- 
lem in her community, then "Salem College, Thee we cherish" is a sad and hollow song. 


"With a Little Bit of Luck" and a rising up of FAIR LADIES throughout the land, our chorus can truthfully 
proclaim: "Then sing we of Salem Ever!" 

Alumnae Fund Report of April 15th is $9,139 

Gifts channeled through the 1963-64 Alumnae Fund 
as of April 15 total $9,139. This amount has come from 
965 individual alumnae and 5 Alumnae Clubs: High 
Point, Reidsville, Greenville and Wilson in North Caro- 
lina and Lehigh Valley Club in Pennsylvania. 

Percentagewise this figures a 17% response from 
our 5,700 located alumnae to whom were sent the "yel- 
low envelope solicitation" last September and in Feb- 
ruary. Our gratitude to these contributors whose response 
shows that they practice the good habit of annual giving. 

However, the comparatively small 17% falls short of 
the 25% goal toward which we strive as a minimum re- 
sponse. The fiscal year of the current Alumnae Fund 
ends on June 30. There is still time to make the 1963-64 
Fund one of which we can be proud. It is an increasing 

number of donors we desire. The amount of the gift is 
appreciated, whether it be large or small; what we stress 
is more names on our roll of annual contributors. Is 
your name on the current list? 

The full report of all alumnae gifts to all designa- 
tions in the fiscal year July 1, 1963 through June 30, 
1964 will be compiled in July and printed in the Fall 
BULLETIN as the comprehensive Salem College Fund, 
of which the Alumnae Fund is only a part. Many 
alumnae make generous gifts to Salem College which 
are not channeled through the Alumnae Fund, hence 
these gifts cannot be credited through the class listings 
of the Alumnae Fund, as they are not received in the 
Alumnae Office for posting there. At the year's end, 
the percentage of alumnae giving to all Salem causes 
may show a definite increase.

SALEM IN 1890 

(Continued from Page Fifteen) 

Students. Among the familiar Salem names that she re- 
calls are Pfohl, Lehman, Shaffner, Spaugh and others. 

The young ladies were not allowed to attend churches 
in town, but were required to go regularly to the Home 
Moravian Church. Pews were reserved for them in the 
balcony, and they marched in by room companies, with 
great decorum. 

Though Mrs. Herndon is now ninety-three, she is still 
as alert as a bird and as shiny as a new coin. She possesses 
a pixie charm and a great deal of wit. She has a wealth of 
general information and shows keen interest in all cur- 
rent affairs. I have never seen anyone grow older in a 
more graceful manner. She is now seeking a suitable Home 
for Senior Citizens, but without enthusiasm, as she says: 
"Everyone is so old and ugly and complaining. I like 
young people." She refuses to go to a home located in the 
country saying she would feel like "an old horse being 
put out to pasture to die. And I want to see life and have 
activity, not listen to the tree frogs and whippoorwills!" 

With such joie de vivre and youthful spirit, I should 
not be at all surprised to meet Mrs. Martha Peirce Hern- 
don in 1972 when we attend the 200th birthday of our 
Salem school.

return to North Carolina. We met several of the six pretty 
daughters and the handsome, well-mannered young man in 
the second grade. (Molly Leight, the eldest girl, is already 
at Salem.) 

If this snow and cold continue, I shall be tempted to 
fly back to the Golden Isles of Greece and live there 
forever. Rhodes, they say, always has perfect weather. It 
takes its name from the roses and is ruled by Apollo, the 
god of the sun! 

Mary Turner 'Willis Lane, '39 

Mary Turner Willis Lane, '39, of Chapel Hill, won 
the March, 1964 ballot election for Alumnae Trustee and 
was accepted by the Board of Trustees of Salem College 
and Academy at their April 2nd meeting. She will take her 
seat on the Board of Trustees in October, 1964, and serve 
a three-year term, which ends in April, 1967. She succeeds 
E. Sue Cox Shore, '41. Mrs. Lane polled a close majority 
of votes over Margaret Newland, '19. She continues to 
serve for another year as secretary of the Alumnae Associa- 


(Continued from Page Ten) 

Before we left Berlin for Goslar, I asked Friedrick 
Arendt, the 21 -year-old youth who had charge of our 
group, why he was going by train instead of on the plane 
with us. He evaded answering until after we reached 
Goslar, and this was his sad reason. 

His elderly parents live in East Germany, and he had 
not seen them in the more than two years since the Wall 
was built, as no one from West Berlin can go into East 
Germany. Through a friend he had let them know that 
he would be coming through on a certain train. His father 
and mother stood beside the track waiting eagerly for a 
glimpse of him as the train passed by. I wanted to cry, 
thinking of that old couple standing there waiting for a 
fleeting glimpse of their fine, handsome son and not being 
able to even speak to him. He told me that they had sent 
him to live with an uncle in West Berlin when he was 
a lad of thirteen. They did not leave because they had a 
nice house and a good farm and kept hoping that con- 
ditions would get better. Now their farm has been taken 
away from them. They are allowed to work the land and 
live in a portion of the house, which they have to share 
with other people. What a heartbreaking aftermath for 
these innocent victims of war! 


Alumna Designs Transformers 
for Fine Arts Building 

Dorothy Heidenreich, '53, during her years with the 
General Electric Company has used the mathematics learn- 
ed at Salem as a foundation for studies in engineering 
and for many years she has had the status of engineer 
in designing machinery to be constructed by the company. 
She writes: 

"Big business isn't sentimental, but some people in the 
GE organization are. Last week our office received orders 
for two transformers for the Fine Arts Building at Salem 
College. My boss brought them to my desk and said he 
thought it would be very appropriate if I issued the 
engineering instructions on these particular transformers. 
I think it is a happy coincidence that those orders came 
to the engineering section in which I work in Rome, 
Georgia. I hope everything goes smoothly in the manu- 
facture of these units, and I look forward to a visit at 
Sakm when the Fine Arts Building is completed." 

Foreign Students 
On Strong Scholarships 

Dreams Becoming Realities 

The Fine Arts Building is taking shape with construc- 
tion on schedule and anticipation of the first Commence- 
ment in the spacious auditorium therein in June, 1965. 
Old Memorial Hall will be razed in time and its site land- 
scaped and returned to the garden aspect of former years, 
when it was the backyard of the Office Building. The 
Office Building, by the way, was built in 1810 — the 
second construction after South Hall — to provide neces- 
sary offices on the first floor and living quarters for the 
Principal's family on the second floor. The Class of 1907 
was the first to graduate in Memorial Hall — a grand 
edifice in its day. 

The New Dormitory was authorized by the Board of 
Trustees at its April meeting, and as soon as College 
closes the Pfohl House will come down and construc- 
tion will start on this building which will be first oc- 
cupied by students in September, 1965. It will have a 
housing capacity of 99 girls. The dormitory will be L- 
shape and contain many convenient features: two recrea- 
tion rooms, five study rooms, a snack bar and a storage 
room on the basement level. Another attractive feature 
will be a sundeck. 

South Hall, built in 1802-04, was the "cradle" of the 
new Boarding School, which evolved from the Girls' 
Day School founded in 1772. This historic building will 
not be used as a student house after the New Dormitory 
is finished. It will be restored to its original appearance 
in line with Sisters' House and become another charming 
place to visit in Old Salem. 

The face of Salem's campus, though changing into a 
gracious, useful maturity, will still present its characteris- 
tic simple, sturdy appearance and prove that "A thing 
of beauty is a joy forever." 

Elsken Rutgers from Leeuwarden , The Netherlands, and 
Celia Pascoal de Gama from Sao Paulo, Brazil. 

This year at Salem Celia Pascoal da Gama of Sao Paulo, 
Brazil and Elsken Rutgers of Leeuwarden, Holland, bring 
to 37 the number of girls from 20 countries who have 
held Strong Scholarships since they were established 15 
years ago (1950-51). 

Celia is our first Strong Scholar from Brazil. Already 
accomplished in four languages, she is studying German 
at Salem. After two more years of further study in Brazil 
she plans to teach English. Celia, who had never travelled 
beyond Sao Paulo and Rio de Jainero, had read much about 
the United States but was not prepared for "the general 
impression of wealth" she feels here. 

Sharing Celia's interest in languages, Elsken is also adept 
in four languages and is adding two Salem English courses 
to her past five years of English study. Under the Experi- 
ment in International Living she visited last summer in 
Vermont and spent a month with her American "family" 
in Harrisonburg, Va. before meeting her "500 sisters" — as 
she calls them — at Salem. Recently at the Northern Area 
meeting in Raleigh Elsken and Celia met and charmed 
some of their alumnae sisters as they chatted about their 
impressions and experiences as Salem girls.

The Professor and I used his sabbatical 
leave for three months in Europe. On 
board the FRANCE layers of years and 

rust evaporated and my facility in French 
returned surprisingly well, which proves 
that we haven't really forgotten what we 
learned early. 

In Scotland we visited Garth cousins 
and Bob had the pleasure of playing golf 
on St. Andrews' "Old Course". After stop- 
ping leisurely in intervening countries on 
the Continent, we flew to Greece, which 
we found as interesting as we expected and 
far more beautiful. We were in remote, 
mysterious Delphi when the unbelievable 
and shocking news of President Kennedy's 
assassination reached us. 'We shall never 
forget the sorrowful brown eyes of Greek 
peasants and city Athenians, nor their eager- 
ness to show sympathy. We were home 
for Christmas with children and grand-

Our Memorial Scholarship as of Feb. 
29, 1964 has $2,628.00 invested. The in- 
terest given in 1963-64 was S87.84. Bright 
McKemie Johnson and Frank visited Sam 
Wilson enroute south last fall, and ran into 
Harold and Elizabeth 'Vogler at a restau- 
rant on The Blue Ridge Parkway. 

Bright said: "We had quite a trip in 
search of our retirement home. We looked 
a little in N. C, a lot around Atlanta and 
some near Warm Springs. Then on to 
Florida's lake region and to Sarasota, where 
we have friends. We bought a home on 
Siesta Key, south of Sarasota. It is a block 
from the Gulf and on a canal, so we hope 
for cooling breezes in summer. It's 12 
years old and has citrus trees with marve- 
lous fruit. There's also an avocado tree and 
I can see myself as Mrs. 5x5 for I enjoy 
them too much." Bright will tell us when 
they move to Florida. 

Dorothy Kirk Dunn sent pictures of re- 
union events to Rosa James for our scrap 
book. You remember how diligent she 
was in taking pictures. She sent Harold 
and Elizabeth an excellent set of the break- 
fast party given for Elizabeth Wilson. 
She sent Bessie Campbell some taken at 
the supper party at Bishop Pfohl's. D. K. 
wrote: "In October Harriett Uzzle and 
her doctor husband dropped by. Dr. 
Stretcher is most attractive and Harriett 
just beautiful with her wavy, snowwhite 
hair. They were headed for Auburn, Ala., 
as their son is a professor at the Univer- 
sity. He is married and has two children. 
Do hope we can persuade them to come 
to the next reunion." 

We were proud of Lil Cutlar Farrior's 
article, "Test Tubes to Torts," in the Bul- 
letin. Her account of being a student of 
the Texas judge who gave President John- 
son the oath of office was delightful, and 
she had a letter from Judge Sara Tilghman 
Hughes as the result. 

Rosa James and sister, Ruth, had a 
wonderful European trip last summer. Now 
they want to return and get acquainted 
with the people. 

Edith Hanes Smith and Albert enjoy 
daughter, "Virginia, and her family in 

Jonesboro. Albert Jr. and family live in 
Gainesville, Fla. now, near enough to spend 
holidays with them as they did at Thanks- 
giving and Christmas. Edith was hospital- 
ized in January but is fine now. Besides 
moving a library into a new school last 
fall, taking care of her home, her mother 
and her aunt, she writes: "I'm having a 
pleasant variation from the library one 
hour a day — a Latin II class. It is amaz- 
ing how it comes back to me, tho' I last 
taught in 1930. The class is a choice one 
which makes it more pleasant. I have a 
full-time assistant in the library — a lux- 
ury I've needed a long time." How does 
she do it? 

Mary Warren recalled the good time 
at reunion last June "with the 23'ers."

Reunion — May 30, 1964 

Salem has no details from President 
Peggy Watkins Wharton on reunion plans, 
but is sure she's working on plans. No news 
from reporter Jeanne Greear, but these 
items have reached Salem: 

Mary Porter Evans Savard sent a picture 
from N. H. paper showing Nelson Rocke- 
feller kneeling beside son Fred Savard, 4. 
Young Fred, however, was more interested . 
in his own skis than in the Governor's 
campaign smile. M. P. told that Peggy 
Gleason Bersani and Dr. Frank have a big 
house for their five boys at 118 Shirley Rd., 
Syracuse, N. Y. Mary's daughter, Alice di 
Zerega, is a big girl of ten now. 

Jo Llorens Pages sent news with her 
check: "My husband and I with our boy, 8 
and girl, 6, visited Salem last summer. It 
seemed impossible that so many years have 
passed since I was there. The new buildings 
are beautiful. The children are doing well 
in Miami school, tho' we have to keep after 
them or they will forget their Spanish. 
Marta Fehrmann Abete also has a boy and 
girl in White Plains, N. Y." 

Mary Motsinger Shepherd reports much 
news. In Oct. she took maternity leave, 
moved into her just finished house, and on 
Nov. 9 daughter Jean Elizabeth arrived. 
She considered resigning her technician's 
job, but after working 10 years at old 
City Hospital, wanted to experience the 
new Forsyth Genera! which opened April 
1st. Mary's neighbor is Iris Stonestreet 
Herring, '48, who has three adorable little 
girls. Mary said Margery Crowgey Koogler's 
Christmas letter from South America was 
most interesting.

For the first time in twenty-four years she will be able to enjoy her 

It will be new, not indelibly etched on her memory after the long 
struggle of preparing it. Its errors will not be hers. The copies that wander 
in search of alumnae who forgot to send their new addresses will not come 
flopping, dog-earred and disheveled, home to her desk. 

A magazine is seldom "dedicated" to anyone, but this one really should be. 

It is chock-full of Alumnae Day activities which honored her. It bulges 
with Class Notes for which she has a special talent. It carries the roll of 
donors to the Alumnae Fund which developed in the term of her service to 
Salem. It highlights Salem Clubs in whose beginnings she was instrumental. 

So — if it weren't for the well-known fact that she is not one to blow 
her own horn or let another do it for her, we would dedicate this issue of the 
Salem College BULLETIN to

Alumnae Day 1964 

We're not very good at writing verse; 
It comes out rhyming couplets — or ivorse. 
But fifteen years have passed, ive loant to say, 
And things have changed quite a bit since our day. 
For instance, ice worried about knitting argyle socks 
And not whether Cuba and the U. S. would throw 

We studied Byron, Shelley, and Keats 

And had never heard of Salinger or the Beats. 

Rockets to the moon ivere just plain silly, 

But WHO to invite to the dance? Now there was 

a dilly! 
And it really didn't matter ivhat our foreign policy 

Just keep Truman in the White House and Garland 

in the hand of Oz. 

We couldn't have cared less about the P.T.A. 

But noil' we have to run the thing, plus all those 

dues to pay! 
Garden clubs and book clubs were objects of scorn 
Just a lot of fat women dishing out corn. 
But noiv we're the presidents of all those groups, 
Plus singing in choirs and leading Scout Troops!

"Salem tea" stirred reflectively

But these days the movies aren't about much.

50th REUNION . . . CLASS OF 1914 

Dear Classmate, 

It hardly seems possible that our Fiftieth Reunion has come and gone! What a marvelous oc- 
casion it was! Surely there are few experiences more satisfying than the renewing of old associations, 
and finding friendships and mutual interests unchanged. 

Our Reunion was remarkable in many ways — first, in numbers present. Of the 36 living grad- 
uates, 21 attended. With us were three loyal non-graduates, so we proudly boasted of two dozen. 

Hope Coolidge and Ruth Potts flew in — from Concord, Mass. and Richmond respectively. Bess 
Hyman Guion and Mary Turner Willis drove from New Bern, Nellie Pinkington Johnson from Pitts- 
boro, Ruth Credle from Pantego, Mattie Lee Korner Wilson from Raleigh, Laura Ridenhour Gibson 
from Concord, N. C, Blanche Cox Walker from Asheboro, Addie McKnight Whicker from North 
Wilkesboro, Lettie Crouch from Mayodan, and Helen Brooks Millis from High Point. Kernersville 
was represented by Maud Kerner Ring and Winston-Salem by Mary Grogan Hughes, Lucy Hadley 
Cash, Ethel McGalliard, Nellie Messick Moore, Cletus Morgan Blanton, May Norman, Ethel Reich, 
Catherine Spach Bynum, Helen Vogler, Pattie Wray Wamack Fetzer and Margaret Blair McCuiston. 

When we gathered in Memorial Hall, Hope Coolidge spoke for our class, and we were all proud 
of her well-chosen words and excellent delivery. When she announced the amount of our gift to the 
Lehman Chair of Literature — almost $2500 — an audible gasp was heard from the large audience, 
followed by a burst of applause. 

A long table was reserved for us at the Luncheon, and we enjoyed the usual delicious meal and 
unceasing conversation. Then we had a group photograph taken — only to discover too late that the 
film was defective! 

Saturday night, Nellie Moore, Mary Hughes and Catherine Bynum had arranged an excellent 
menu and beautiful decorations for our dinner at Forsyth Country Club. Afterward, during our business 
meeting, we observed a moment of silence while Pat read the names of nine of our members who have 
died. Then, letters we received from Molly Brown Conti, Kate Eborn Cutting, Velma Martin Burrus and 
Louise Siler were read aloud. We unanimously elected Lucy Cash president, Mary Hughes vice presi- 
dent, Hope Coolidge correspondent, and Helen Vogler fund agent. All congratulated Mary Turner 
Willis on the election of her daughter Mary as a Trustee of Salem College. We were glad that our 
long-lost Elizabeth Woodward has been located (Mrs. J. Leland Roberts, 706 W. Cranford Ave., Val- 
dosta, Ga. ). 

Pat called on each member of the class to tell something about herself. What interesting and 
worthwhile lives were modestly reported! We may all be justifiably proud to belong to this group. 

On Sunday morning about half of us sat together in Home Church for the Baccalaureate Service. 
That afternoon as a climax to the week-end, Maud Kerner Ring invited the whole class for supper 
in her beautiful Kernersville home. Five unlucky ones had left early, but 19 of us crowded Maud's liv- 
ing room, laughed at old photocraphs, consumed dozens of sandwiches, and added more calories with 
a fabulous dessert. We parted with regret, but with deep thankfulness for the joy of two unforgettable 

To the 1 1 from whom we did not hear — we miss 5'ou sadly, remember you with pleasure, and 
long for news of you. 

To all of you — our gratitude and thanks for the privilege of serving as your officers for these 
last five years. 

With all »ood wishes, t h ^ rr ■ r

25th REUNION . . . CLASS OF 1939 

Back at Salem 

By Mary Thomas Fleury 

The Twenty-fifth Reunion was a lot of fun and a real 
treat for those who could be there. Friday night there was 
a dinner party at Forsyth Country Club, planned by Forrest 
Mosby Vogler. After dinner those who stayed on campus 
in the dorm talked til the wee hours! Saturday morning

Turner Lane recognized as the newest College Trustee. 
After the Luncheon we had our class meeting and prompt- 
ly elected Annette McNeely Leight president, Mary Thomas

daughter attends Meredith. Mary Gwyn Williams Hub-

What a lot of news — and yet, there must be more 
to share. Let us hear from all of you during this year. 

10th REUNION CLASS 1954 

Connie Murray McCuiston's remarks at Alumnae 
Luncheon were so highly appropriate we asked her to let 
us include them here for all. She commented that the little 
speech was better said than read. Maybe — but either 
way it has worth that extends beyond the class of '54 and 
beyond the soft tinkle of ice tea being stirred in the Re- 

"Ten years ago we were concerned with graduation, and 
ten years from now we will once again be concerned with 
graduation as many of our offspring will be graduating 
from high school and even a few from college. 

"At this interim period most of us are pretty well 
settled in our lives and taking our places in our commu- 
nities. We are beginning to take places of leadership, and 
perhaps our strongest influence will be in these next 
twenty years. And after those years it will be interesting 
to see, not what we have been, but what we have become. 

"Surely we will see that our years at Salem were only 
a beginning — that, in fact, all of life is really only a 
beginning and a preparation. I wish for you an interesting 
journey through the coming months and years." 

Any Reunion Year 

Any Reunion year, 35th, 10th or 2nd, is 
important. So, when they had paid appro- 
priate honor to the two classes being recog- 
nized in a special way, the other "reuning" 
classes quickly got to their own chattering 
catch-up and fill-in. Each brought her news 
and shared news of others far and near. 
Much of their conversation over the hours 
of Alumnae Weekend is recorded in these 
pages of Class Notes. 

It seems especially appropriate in this 
BULLETIN, highlighting Alumnae news 
and activities, to include the list of those 
who gave to the 1963-64 Alumnae Fund. 
The list does not include the names of many 
others who gave to Salem through scholar- 
ships, Friends of the Library, 20th Decade 
Fund, and other designated gifts. Were 
their gifts recorded here, the total of alum- 
nae giving would be well above $100,000 
from twenty-five percent of Salem's daugh- 

class Notes 

In memory of . 


Rosannah Blair, librarian at Salem 1919- 
1922, died on September 25th in Charlotte. 
She served as librarian at Princeton Uni- 
versity, in the public library of Pittsburgh, 
Pennsylvania, and at Charlotte's Central 
High School. Her life and service in each 
of these places won the respect and affec- 
tion of all who knew her.

Martha Brown and 

Carrie Rollins Sevier 

of the Class of '94. 

From the Mt. Airy Newspaper, "Swan- 
nanoa Brower Hadley's 100th birthday 
on May 2 1 was celebrated not only by 
family and friends but also by the town 
of Mt. Airy, proud of its gracious lady and 
her centenarian status." Her Salem sisters 
joined in the celebration on Alumnae Day, 
honoring with warm applause the greet- 
ings she sent with her daughters, Sallie 
Hadley Yokley '12, Lucy Hadley Cash '14, 
and Jamie Hadley Smith '15. 


After Alumnae Luncheon, Carrie Rol- 
lins Sevier and Martha Brown Boyd were 
interviewed by a Winston-Salem reporter 
as they sat by the fountain on the Upper 
Pleasure grounds behind Main Hall. As 
she recalled her narrow bed high in 
Main Hall, Carrie pointed to the window 
she remembered so well and then to a 
window several hundred feet away where, 
under supervision, baths were taken in 
tin tubs. She recalled, too, the prophecy 
she wrote about Martha Brown. "She was 
always primping, and even today she's 
still primping. My prophecy was pretty 
accurate." My prophecy had said that 
Martha would live surrounded by mir-

The Commencement of 1964 found 
four of us together. The ones present for 
the Luncheon and a meeting at my house 
following, were Pat Morgan Aycock, Nan- 
nie Lybrook O'Hanlon, Alberta Kerns 
and myself. (Editor's note: Bishop Pfohl 
was a very welcome and well-remember- 
ed guest at their table.) 
From the Alumnae House: 

With pride we quote from the bro- 

chure of the Brevard Music Center which 
announced late summer completion of 
an attractive large A-frame structure 01 
stone and Redwood to house the ever- 
expanding program at Transylvania Mu- 
sic Camp. "The Board of Trustees of 
the Brevard Music Center has named 
the new auditorium in tribute to these 
two (Bishop and Mrs. Pfohl) friends of 
young people, of music, of all that is 
beautiful and spiritual. They have been 
an inspiration to hundreds of people 
through their interest and work for the 
Brevard Music Center, the Moravian 
Church, the Federation of Music Clubs, 
and countless other paths along which 
they have lived. The Brevard Music 
Center is deeply grateful to these two 
wonderful people." 


With sorrow we report the death on 
June 20 of Margaret Keith Mickey fol- 
lowing long illness. We extend sym- 
pathy to her sister, Virginia Keith Mont- 
gomery '08.

As we approach being octogenarians 
I fear some of us are losing our zest 
for life, which Stanley Hall has said is 
one of the greatest sins of maturity.

she is still meeting the challenges of life

to have Mary as a classmate and an 
honor that Salem was chosen for the four 
daughters whose brother was a West 
Point man. Col. Wood made a donation 
to Salem in memory of two sisters and 
has left a bequest to Salem in honor of 
our beloved Mary and her sister Helen. 
We appreciate the beautiful spirit and 
generosity of Col. Wood and Mary.

Editor: Before giving the report of 
'04 we must share with all the classes 
what the Twin City Sentitiel had to say 
about these girls: "One of the busiest 
reunion groups was the class of 1904. 
During the week-end their group con- 
vened in the Twin City with an agenda 
scheduled which could easily exhaust the 
younger graduates. 

A local member of the class, Corrine 
Norfleet, had as her week-end house- 
guests Fan Powers Smith of Canada, Liza 
Knox Winters of Raleigh, and Glenn 
McDonald Roberts of Carthage. 

Another local alumna, Ruth Crist 
Blackwell, entertained her classmates at 
a tea in her home. This party was sche- 
duled for late Saturday afternoon, follow- 
ing a day of meetings and a luncheon." 

Now to Corrine's account. 

* * * 

May 30 was quite a happy day for the 

"reuning" class of 1904. Of our 15 
members 1 1 came — Fan Powers, all the 
way from Canada! You four who could 
not come missed a joyful time and we 
ceratinly missed you. 

Fan went on to Bermuda, and right 
here we let her tell about it delightfully 
through a letter written from Southamp- 
ton to Lelia G. Marsh. 

"The days here have just flown by! 
It has meant so much for me to be here 
with my daughter, Betry, her husband 
and the three grandchildren whom I 
had not seen for more than six years. 
They are no longer the children I re- 
membered. Allan 16 is now writing his 
entrance exams for university. The twins, 
Brenda a beautiful girl and Bruce a 
husky long-legged dear lad, are 13. 

This little island is ablaze with ole- 
ander and hybicus and many flowering 
trees. Today I flew for 2 hours by small 
plane over the island and coral reefs. 
The deep blue-green of the sea dotted 
with innumerable sail boats, the white 
foofs of the houses — a distinctly new 
scene to me. 

The family got an invitation for me 
to the Government House Garden Party. 
The parry was quite British, garden- 
party hats and several "Sirs" to meet. 

I had expected to return home before 
this but the Newport-Bermuda sailing 
race in which my son-in-law is sailing, 
is due the first of the week, so I shall 
leave only after the boats all come in. A 
month absence from home — one of the 
happiest holidays I have ever had." 

Glenn took off to Pennsylvania to 
visit her daughter, then her son Jack and 
his family. He has recently become pastor 
of the historic Presbyterian Church in 
Charleston, S. C. 

Liza is selling her house, and she and 
Rhett will take a duplex with her daugh- 
ter and grand-daughter. She hates to leave 
her garden. 

It gave me great pleasure to have Fan, 
Glenn and Liza with me and I would 
have loved having all fifteen if it had 
been possible! 

Nat made the trip from Bristol most 
successfully, driving both ways herself. 
It was good to have Kate come with her. 

Mary and Roscoe Foreman had us to 
dinner Friday night and we had great 
fun. Mary made the speech of the day 
at the Alumnae Luncheon. 

Mary Watlington writes of her real 
pleasure in attending the Reunion, and I 
hope to see her in Winston-Salem in 

Sophie Tatura Vaughn just had to go 
see her first great grandchild in from 
the far West, and then to Davidson on 
Sunday to see her grandson graduate. 

Emma Foust Scott and her husband 
were "guests" on a "Trailways Tour" of 
the Northwest and Canada for three 
weeks. She hated to miss the Reunion. 

All the local girls are fine, and we 
continue to think of the delightful tea 
we had with Ruth Crist Blackwell. It 
was lovely and we were so happy to 
have Miss Marsh with us. 

1 have returned after three weeks at 
the beach with Lib and Jack. And now I 
expect all of you to write to me and 
tell me all your news. 


Three cheers for 1904's. And now to 
plan for our 75th Reunion!

Reunion Report by 
Maude Carmichael Williamson 

Though few in numbers we were not 
laclcing in enthusiasm and interest when 
the "naughty-niners" were entertained at 
dinner at the home of Edith Willingham 
Womble Friday evening May 29th. Fol- 
lowing the delicio'is dinner, we gathered 
in the living room for a session of rem- 
iniscing on the old days at Salem and 
exchanging news to bring everyone up 
to date on the interests and activities of 
the 24 class members living. Since last 
Reunion in 1959 two members have 
passed on: Mary Kathleen Simmons in 
October 1960 and Carrie Hawkins Kidd 
in July 1962. 

When the '09 annual was brought out, 
each name was called and information on 
each was recorded. There were eight of 
us present: Maude Carmichael William- 
son, Mary Howe Farrow, Leila Johnson 
Walker, Mary Lu Motsinger, Mary Oliver, 
C'audia Shore Kester, Edith Willingham 
Womble and Carrie Whicker Norman. 

Some told of grandchildren; others 
boasted of great-grandchildren. Edith 
showed us a picture of her large and 
interesting family, which besides herself 
and husband includes six children and 
24 grandchildren. To date she has no 
great-gandchildren. This distinction be- 
longs to Louise Wilson Clark, who has 
three children, ten grandchildren and five 
great-grandchildren, and to Mary Howe 
Farrow, whose family includes three 
children, five grandchildren and one 

Our secretary, Maude Carmichael Wil- 
liamson, reported that she had received 
four replies to notices sent to members 
who could not attend our Reunion; Nonie 
Carrington Lipscomb and Kathleen Kor- 
ner were disabled; Bertie Langley Cash's 
husband was ill; and Maude Reynolds 
had her piano pupils' recital that day. 

It was decided at the meeting that our 
scrapbook should be kept by the his- 
torian Kathleen Korner, 241 Main St., 
Kernersville, N. C. Members should send 
to her items of interest of themselves and 
their families to be placed in the book. 
It was also suggested that Class Notes 
from the BULLETIN be incorporated. 

Officers elected to serve until the 60th 
Reunion in 1969 were: President, Mary 
Howe Farrow; "Vice Pres., Claudia Shore 
Kester; Sec.-Treas., Maude Carmichael 
Williamson; Correspondent, Mary Oliver, 
Historian, Kathleen Korner. 

Saturday morning we gathered in 
Memorial Hall for the Alumnae Asso- 
ciation meeting and then attended the 

Then Edith hurried away to gradua- 
tion exercises at Duke where a grandson 
received his B.A. degree and her hus- 

band an honorary Doctor of Laws degree. 

We are glad to report that Bertie's 
husband is better and that she visited 
her mother, now 92, in Winston-Salem in 

Maude Carmichael Williamson and 
daughter Alice had a delightful visit 
in June with her brother Robert at his 
summer place in N. H. They drove up 
through the country and returned by 
jet. Maude retired from work at McPhail's 
gift Shop but has been persuaded to re- 
turn because of the shortage of experi- 
enced help. 

Mary Oliver visited Kathleen Korner 
in June and found her able to use a 
walker after her disabling injury from a 
fractured thigh last Christmas. 

Margaret Lentz Lockwood has a new 
address: from New Orleans to 43 Race 
Ave., Watertown, Mass. We would love 
to hear news. 

Martha Allen Martin has also made a 
big move, from Ohio to 2408 Kery Dr., 
Greensboro, N. C. That brings her in easy 
visiting distance of the campus. 

And Mary Pulliam West left Ft. Worth 
for 821 Zelda Dr. in Hurst, Texas. This 
class is still on the move. 

Fifty-five years seem quite a long time 
since the daisy chain fell from our should- 
ers and we were sent out into the world 
to take our place. The years have slipped 
by so rapidly it seemed but yesterday we 
were "stately seniors". Girls, begin now 
making plans for our 60th Reunion! 


Nina Hester Gunn has greatly enjoyed 
letters from Salem written by her grand- 
daughter Hunter Gourdon '67. 

Eunice Hall Culpepper writes that she 
is enjoying improved health now and ex- 
presses again her regret at not being able 
to act as Correspondent. She says, "This 
past spring Anne Sorsby with her good 
friend Mary Battle of Rocky Mount spent 
the day with us en route to see friends in 
Winston-Salem and High Point. As always 
the hours with them were delightful and 
all too short. In July Addie Webb and 
her sister, who were visiting their brother 
and his wife in Southern Pines, had lunch 
with us. Addie had enjoyed so much a 
day Mildred Harris spent with her in Ral- 
eigh last summer. 

By the first of November my sister and 
I expect to occupy an apartment at the 
Presbyterian Home in High Point. We 
leave Southern Pines with regret even 
though we shall be only a few miles dis- 
tant, for there is no lovelier town in the 
country nor a more delightful place in 
which to live, but perhaps being sensible 
is never the most pleasant thing to do." 

In the meantime we are seeking news 
from each of you. A note to the Alumnae 
House will find its way to this column 
in the Winter BULLETIN.

The sympathy of Salem friends is ex- 
tended to the families of Dorothy Johnson 
Smith of Livingston, Ala., and Flossie Ann 
Loy DeMoss of Burlington, N. C, who 
have passed away in recent months. 


Judith Ann Parker Falkener writes, "Due 
to an automobile accident Christmas Day 
1963 I had to give up my work at Strat- 
ford College in Danville, Va. I find being 
alone at home [in Warrenton, N. C] not 
the most interesting experience of my life. 
Trust soon I'll be good as new and can 
still make a worthwhile contribution to 
life. Sorry I didn't get to visit Salem 
when so near. No doubt many, many 
changes have been made, still memories 
of the yesteryears spent there are among 
my most cherished." 

Ella Rea Carroll Trollinger '15 writes 
of her sister Edith's death March 7. "She 
wanted so much to attend her class' 50th 
Reunion last year but was prevented by 
failing health." Edith Carroll Brown did 
graduate work at UNC, Cornell, and the 
University of California at Berkeley and 
taught at Salem Academy 1916-18. We 
extend to Ella Rea our sympathy in her 

Mildred Wilcox pleases us greatly by 
writing, "The Winter Salem College BUL- 
LETIN was so interesting that I feel moved 
to write. I am happily doing what I can 
for church and community since retiring 
from full-time teaching (special education) 
in 1960. I teach piano lessons a few hours 
nearly every weekday. This work gives me 
real satisfaction. It would be a pleasure 
to see Salem where I so enjoyed our 
Shakespeare pageant and classes in English. 

Please make that last word "Definitely!" 
The opening of the grand new Fine Arts 
Building and your 50th Reunion this com- 
ing May we hope will combine irresistably 
to pull Mildred and the whole class of 
1915 back to "see Salem."

out Lelia Graham.'" We all ask the same 
and wish her well.

stead. Lucille is retired and having a 
wonderful time travelling with her hus- 
band. "Lois hasn't changed a bit." 

Your correspondent spent a quiet sum- 
mer. My husband's mother came up from 
Florida for the summer and, since she is 
a diabetic, I was counting calories. My 
excitement comes in October when a new 
grandchild will be added to the darling 
grand-daughter we now enjoy. 

Best wishes to all of you.

Reunion Report by 
Maina Vo.gler 

The Class of 1919 held its 45th Reunion 
at Salem on Saturday, May 30. Those at- 
tending wete: Marjorie Davis Armstrong, 
Mary Hunter Deans Hackney, Virginia 
Wiggins Horton, Emily 'Vaughn Kapp, Ina 
Mae Lee, Lelia Graham Marsh, Mar.gie 
Hastings Pratt, Doris Cozart Schaum, Mag- 
gie Mae Thompson Stockton. Maina Vog- 
ler, and Frances Ridenhour White. 

During the afternoon business session 
the following officers were elected. Lelia 
Graham Marsh, President; Maggie Mae 
Stockton, Corresponding Secretary; and 
Maina Vogler, Recording Secretary. 

The day's activities concluded with din- 
ner at the Forsyth Country Club. 

Among those who missed Reunion ac- 
tivities was Delia Dodson Crowell on a 
seven-week tour of Europe with her hus- 
band. She dashed off greetings to the class 
while waiting for a ferry to Venice. Her 
new address in Winston-Salem is 363 N. 
Stratford Road. 

Mag Newland greeted the class from 
Bangkok, Thailand. "Ah, what an exper- 
ience! Every minute seems filled with 
color, strange customs, quaint people. Ja- 
pan's cherry blossoms and Mt. F"ii, Hong 
Kong's beautiful harbor but filled with 
poverty stricken refugees, Bangkok's most 
unusual architecture — you must see all 
this sometime. " Her world tour ended 
with five wonderful weeks in England and 
Scotland. Then she rested and reflected 
back home at Little Switzerland before 
making a complicated move to Morgan- 
ton that involved most of western N. C. 

Martha Miller McKellar missed Reunion 
because her third grade was still in ses- 
sion. She retired in June and so can be 
counted on in 1969 for the 50th Reunion. 

Claire Brown Martin writes, "I've never 
forgotten those years at Salem and I treas- 
ure many memories and acquaintances." 
A most important part of her life is her 
family of five grandchildren, ages 15 to 2. 
She is making up for all the years she 
had no time for travel. With her hus- 
band she has enjoyed visiting "about every 
point of interest in our country." 

Mary Mac missed Reunion because she 
was busy as camp registrar. She writes : 

"Still sick over missing the 45th Reunion; 
striving to hold on for the 50th! Chief 
news is that daughter Eleanor '53 and her 
husband will be at Duke this year where 
he will teach in the Romance Language 

President "Le" spent some interesting 
time at Sweet Briar with Margaret Ban- 
nister of Tears Aye For The Living fame. 
She then visited Eunice at her summer 
home on the Rappahannock River and re- 
turned via Chapel Hill and Greensboro. 

Virginia and Ham have another grand- 
daughter, born January 26, Rosalie Hanes 
Horton. The Holt grandchildren have vis- 
ited them at various times during the 

Marjorie Armstrong is grandmother 
again. Patricia Jane Patterson put in her 
appearance June 17, and she is a honey. 

Mary Hunter and John had fun with 
Mary Hunter, Jr. and her family at Top- 
sail Beach. Think Hunt spent most of her 
time baiting fish hooks for the boys. 

Maggie Mae has been with Ralph to 
church conferences from Pittsburgh to Lake 
Junaluska. They went to Myrtle Beach to 
rest up in August. 


Dot Folks Rippard writes from Way- 
cross, Ga., "I treasure my memories of 
Salem and the unforgettable friendships 
made while there. My one regret is that 
I do not have a daughter to send to en- 
joy a similar experience. Jim and I enjoy 
good health and stay busy. Our yard is 
our hobby — and it's lovely. Wish you 
could have seen it in March ablaze with 
azaleas. Since then we have enjoyed Easter 
lillies, roses, sweet peas, gardinias and 
what-have-you. Why not come by and see 
it for yourself?"

Helen Street Brown writes of the death 
of Pearl Ray Long's husband Clyde, a year 
ago in Asheville. To her we express our 
deep sympathy. 

Mildred Steimle has a new address in

With her gift to Salem Mary Parker Ed- 
wards sent her new street address in 
Greenville, N. C: 510 W. 4th Stteet. 

Lucile Young Laughinghouse, her shell 
shop and museum were most interestingly 
written up in the Raleigh News and Ob- 
server on August 16. "The shop," said 
reporter Betty Marsh, "is a tiny frame one 
with cool, blue-green inside walls, fishnet 
draped windows, a pleasant folksy clutter 
of shells everywhere, and a door that 
opens every day but Sunday, from May 1 
to the end of September. Its reasons for 
success are many. Her warm personality. 
The closeness of the military base. Cherry 
Point. Most especially, her reputation as 
a collector. Duke Marine biologists con- 
sider hers the most complete known native 
N. C. collection. It boasts over 200 varie- 

All this has developed in the last 8 
years since her tobacconist husband re- 


tired, they moved from Greenville, and 
their two daughters married. In promot- 
ing her business she has used the graduate 
work she did in commercial art and ad- 
vertising — and "untold patience." Her two 
daughters and six grandchildren have made 
valuable finds. She says winds and low 
tides make March and April the best 
shelling months. "September is a good 
second choice and after a hurricane is the 
very best time. I'm a perfect scavenger. I 
pick up anything I see. I'll keep on as 
long as I can walk. Walking a stretch 
of uninhabited beach with no noise but 
the surf and the cry of the gulls brings 
peace, both mental and physical, and it is 
thete I feel closest to God." 

Out thanks to reporter Betty Marsh for 
giving us this "visit" with Lucile.

November 15 is the next daedline for 
class news for the Winter BULLETIN. 
Please let me hear from you as your name 
is needed. Dish-washing, weed-pulling and 
grandchildren will be welcomed news. 

Beulah Barwick Graham, 109 Eastover 
Ave., Clinton, N. C, wrote to EZV on 
March 30: "I long to see my old Salem 
friends and read every word in the BUL- 
LETIN but just fail to let anyone know 
how proud I am to be a Salem girl . . . 
After leaving Salem I taught school sev- 
eral years and met my husband when I 
went to Dunn to teach. After his death 
I worked in the First Citizen's Bank until 
two years ago when I decided to come 
here to manage my brother's gift shop 
... I go to Atlanta to the shows in 
January and July and at that time I visit 
my sister, Irene." Isn't it grand to hear 
from Beulah after all these years. Now 
please let us hear from you. 

Edith Hanes Smith said Bright McKemie 
and Frank Johnson stopped by in mid- 
May on their way north after three weeks 
in Florida arranging for their move to 
their home there. Edith says they seem 
eager to get settled. They plan to move 
this fall. Edith is teaching at Emory 
University again this summer. 

Alice Lyerly Bost's daughter in Winston- 
Salem has two little boys, 5 and 3 years 
old, and a brand new pretty home. 

Estelle McCanless Haupert and Ray, 
Tom, and Steve gave Harold and Elizabeth 
Vogler a delightful time in Bethlehem at 
the Moravian Music Festival in June. 
Estelle is a grandmother as Peter and his 
wife have adopted a baby. 

Eliza Moore Pollard was in California 
in June. Her card said: "have been with 
EG foi two weeks and today Larry's wife 
comes and gets me for a visit with them 
and their five grand sons. Tolly is in the 
throes of the end of school, but will join 
me at Larry's nex tweek. Welford is in 
Salt Lake City and I'll join him there be- 
fore too long. Hope to return home by 
August 1st." 

Agnes Pfohl Eller and other members 
of her family attended her son's wedding 
in June in Charlotte. Lt. John graduated 
from Annapolis and is stationed aboard 
the USS Manley out of Charleston, S. C. 

Bessie Pfohl Campbell was honored at 
a breakfast March 14 which was "offered 
as a community-wide testimonial" (The 

Evening Star — Washington) to her as a 
former school board member. 

Alice Rulfs Farmer has nine grandchil- 
dren, the oldest in the fifth grade. Her 
son, Graham, in Winston-Salem has two 
darling little girls and a new baby girl. 
Alice has one daughter in Wilson, N. C. 
and one in Charlotte. 

Mary Cline Warren was in Winston- 
Salem this spring when a relative of hers, 
Dr. Merritt, spoke at Bowman Gray School 
of Medicine and to other groups. EZV in 
Salem could not equal Mary Cline's abil- 
ity as a guide in Wilmington. If you want 
to hear the heartbeat of Wilmington, Mary 
Cline can let you listen. 

Sally Tomlinson Sullivan, bless her, 
gathers Salem news wherever she goes. 
She was in Winston-Salem this spring on 
her way home from Florida. Your cor- 
respondent's notes taken over the telephone 
are cold now. I hope I am reporting cor- 
rectly the items she chatted about: 

On her way to Florida she talked with 
Katherine Denny Home who has bought 
a very large farm near Fayetteville. One 
of Denny's daughters has or is working for 
a Ph.D. degree from Harvard and the 
other for an M.A. She has a married son 
in Washington. 

In Tallahassee, Sally had coffee with 
Sarah Herndon at the University Club and 
saw her office. Sarah said her sister Mar- 
garet was fine. She did not get to see Miss 
Deviney ( taught us biology, etc. — remem- 
ber?) who lives there since retirement. 

Sally is doing a big job for Salem in 
her area. She is the assistant director of 
her Alumnae Region which includes New 
Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania and the Dis- 
trict of Columbia. 

Sally's journeys always bring us news 
of our classmates and other Salem friends. 
Your correspondent . wishes others would 
"go collecting" when touring because it 
brings pleasure to all of us.

It was a rather awesome experience 
May 30th to stand on the high plateau 
of a 40th class Reunion, just about half- 
way between Salem's oldest living alumnae 
and her youngest: to be able to bring 
into sharp focus the years 1920-24 when 
we were so intimately a part of the daily 
life of Salem and, at the same time, to 
look forward and to contribute, as con- 
tribute substantially we must, to the Salem 
College of the decades ahead. 

It was also heart-warming — and great 
fun! Eighteen of us recognized each other 
instantly. We slipped into old nicknames, 
picked up old friendships, and were un- 
animously glad we had returned. 

Answering roll call were: Adelaide Arm- 
field Hunter, Bessie Chandler Clark, Eliose 
Chesson Gard, Marion Cooper Fesperman, 
Laura Howell Schorr, Emily Moye Hadley, 
Margaret Russell Eggleston, Eleanor Schaf- 
fner Guthrie, Margaret Smith Gray, Hazel 
Stephenson, Elizabeth Strowd Ashby, Net- 
tie Allen Thomas Voges, Pauline Turner 
Doughton, Olive Belle Williams Roscoe, 
Louise Young Carter, Marian Propst Har- 
per, Jessamine Brown Cass, and Rheumell 
Smoak Styers. 

There were telegrams and letters full of 
news from : 

Mary Lou Boone Brown, who had ex- 
pected to be present but was involved in 
a baby-sitting delight; 

Mary Bradham Tucker, who wrote three 
of us to tell of her disappointment at 
missing the reunion; 

Catherine Crist, whose absence was due 
to a call to jury duty; 

Lillie May Crotts, who was visiting her 
daughter in Illinois; 

Dr. Sarah Herndon, whose delightful 
letter was read in full by Hazel Stephen- 
son, and who received a first-hand report 
on the reunion a week later in Washing- 
ton, D. C. from Nettie Allen; 

Estelle Hooks Byrum, whose daughter 
Betty is also a Salem daughter; 

Marjorie Hunt Shapleigh, whose tele- 
gram of greeting promised a long letter 
which hasn't yet arrived; 

Lois Neal Anderson, who had planned 
to be present — until the last minute; 

Jane Noble Rees, who had also hoped to 
attend, but had conflicting responsibilities 
with her sons' programs; 

Mary Pfohl Lassiter, whose parents, 
Bishop and Mrs. J. Kenneth Pfohl, were 
at the Alumnae Luncheon, and then invited 
us to have our business meeting in their 
home — this was a special treat, and brought 
Mary closer to us with all the pictures of 
her family; 

Mary Howard Turlington Stewart, who 
sent greetings from Hong Kong. She and 
her husband were on a wonderful trip to 
Korea, where their younger son is an Army 

President Eleanor Schaffner Guthrie had 
the program for the day well in hand. 
With dispatch and decorum we re-elected 
her, and the following additional officers 
Vice President, Elizabeth Strowd Ashby 
Fund Agent, Margaret Russell Eggleston 
Special Project Agent, Emily Moye Hadley 
Secretary - Correspondent - and - Other - 
Odd - Jobs, Nettie Allen Voges. 

The business over, we thoroughly en- 
joyed an excellent dinner at Tanglewood, 
thanks to Adelaide Hunter, Ellie Guthrie 
and Jessamine Cass, who did a beautiful 
arrangement for us of pink and red roses. 

At least four husbands (George Fes- 
perman, George Roscoe, Henry Harper and 
Quinn Eggleston) rewarded us with fleet- 
ing glimpses; but Wallace Schorr, Laura 
Howell's almost-new second husband, evad- 
ed the gamut of our appraisal. However, 
Laura's radiant happiness assures his whole- 
hearted acceptance into our Class family. 

Most of us learned with regret and 
sorrow, after we had separated, of the 
death in May 1963 of Margaret Smith 
Grey's Jim. 

BULLETIN space is limited, and we 
mustn't be selfish. Presently, between the 
miasmic doldrums of Washington's sum- 
mer weather and the boiling up and over 
of political pots, Nettie Allen promises 
to share with you all the collected news 
of children, grandchildren, gardens, com- 
mittees and the pot pouri of activities 
that fill our days. 

Meantime, Emily Moye Hadley will write 
about our Special Project.

Kitty, her teen-age daughter Dotty and 
her granddaughter Ginny. However, this 
summer things were pretty quiet. Kitty 
married her high school sweetheart and she 
and Ginny moved to their new home. Dotty 
went on the Winston-Salem tour oat West

Emily Sargent Councilman says, "It was 
great to be back at Salem for our 35th 
reunion. As for my interests and activities, 
I'm having a wonderful time growing 
"old" with my husband and enjoying 
our grandson as well as our children. For 
the past few years I've gone into the

class of '90 ) saying, "It seems almost un- 
believable but she is alert and spry' as 
can be!" Sarah had two relatives among 
the Class of '64, Marguerite Harris and 
Elizabeth Sykes, but she and Trent were

Trent, Jr. was graduatin.g. 

Katharine Brown Wolf enjoyed a brief 
visit to Salem in August on her way to 
Atlanta and Charleston. She sent news 
with her gift to Salem. "Ethel McMinn 
Brown and her husband Bob hosted us 
very graciously in Charleston. For us each 
year becomes increasingly full. Our two 
eldest children are married and live in 
South Jersey. They have provided us with 
two interesting grandchildren. My hus- 
band Bob is mayor of our little town of 
6000 (Rockaway) and that has proved 
quite time consuming. I do substitute 
teaching and this year am on the State 
Tercentenary Committee for the borough 
of Rockaway. Our youngest is in his third 
year at the University of Mississippi and 
is an ardent rebel. We are looking for a 
retirement home in one of the Carolinas." 


We are saddened by the death of Mary 
B. Williams Greenleaf. She and her son, 
Roger, Jr., were killed in an auto acci- 
dent in August. To her family we extend 
the sympathy of her many Salem friends. 

We report with sorrow the death of

go our sympathy.

Quite by accident we have happily 
caught up with Rebecca Miller, twin sister 
of Mary Miller '32. Rebecca, while teach- 
ing after leaving Salem, collaborated on 
a unit evaluating radio and television 
programs for the teachers' Handbook of 
Dade County, Fla. She did further study 
at UNC and the University of Miami, and 
earned her MA from Florida State Uni- 
versity. She is the mother of a son. 
Wells, and the wife of J. G. Carpenter, 
which gives her the same married name 
as sister Mary! Rebecca was "found" in 
the announcement of her new position as 
Librarian at Gaston College, which opened 
its doors this fall. 

To be absolutely certain we had found 
the tight Rebecca, we compared the news- 
paper picture with that in the '32 an- 
nual — may we all compare so favorably! 
Congratulations to a Salemite of whom 
we are very proud.

Dear Class of '34, 

At Reunion we decided to combine 
the duties of Fund Agent and Corres- 
pondent for the next five years. Five 
persons agreed to take the job, each for 
a year. 

'64-65 Susan Calder Rankin 

'65-66 Sara Horton Fairley 

'66-67 Ruth Wolfe Waring 

'67-68 Kathleen Adkins Blackwell 

'68-69 Catherine Lasater Stearns 

These five are eager or see that our class 
becomes acitve in Salem affairs. They are 
looking forward to giving this plan a real 

Since in some way we missed the photo- 
grapher, we can safely claim to be the 
best-looking Reunion group this year! 
What are a few gray hairs anyway? Eight 
of us had a really "newsy" session in the 
Alumnae House after the morning meet- 
ing — the 30th commencement since as 
seniofs we were welcomed into the Salem 
Alumnae Association. 

Dorabelle Graves Sykes was there with 
a daughter among the brand-new-graduate- 

My daughtet Ellen and I made another 
mother-daughter team. Ellen was back for 
her second-year Reunion. 

We were happy to have Ruth Wolfe 
Waring's husband with her at our '34 

President Eleanor Cain Blackraore went 
to the mike to bring greetings for us at 
the Luncheon. She also led our afternoon 
get-together where our real accomplish- 
ment was lining up correspondents in hopes 
of getting more and better news. I will 
serve this year and hope to hear from 
every '34-er who reads this. In 1965 
Sara Horton Fairley will take over, and 
then right down the list above. So if you 
tend to be a little slow in letting us heat 

from you, you might aim at writing Bessie 
Lee Welborn Duncan, correspondent for 

Our eight was composed of doctor's 
wife Dorabelle, six "worn-out-but-going- 
strong" teachers, and our fisherman-grand- 
mother Bessie Lee. Do we have others 
(grandmothers, that is)? If so, let us in 
on the news. Bessie Lee says it's wonder- 
ful; she has a boy 2 and a girl 3, 
"as wild as Indians and as cute as but- 
tons". She hopes to maice a Salemite of 
Jane Lee. Husband Edwin has recently 
opened a branch bank, The Northwestern, 
in Winston-Salem. 

Sara Fairley's son John graduated from 
Pfeiffer in May and was president of Men's 
Student Government. He entered UNC Law 
School this fall. Sara is guidance counselor 
with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools. 

Katharine Lasater Stearns, still with 
that pretty red hair, teaches English in 
the Laurinburg High School. Her son 
Junius III is a senior at UNC where he 
plans to continue in Law School. 

Daughter Mary is a senior in high 
school and was at the Governor's School 
this summer. She hopes to attend Salem. 

Kathleen Adkins Blackwell, who again 
wrote us a Reunion poem, teaches third 
grade at Pine Hall. She has a wonderful 
record of teaching there every year but 
one since leaving Salem. She and husband 
Garland live with his mother who is 92! 

Eleanor Blackmore enjoys teaching at 
Salem Academy. Three of her children are 
in the Winston-Salem city schools; Martha 
is at Greensboro College, and Susan will 
be in graduate school at Harvard. 

Ruth Waring's son William Marshall 
was married June 13 to Cathy Mintz of 
Chapel Hill. He was a math major gradu- 
ate at Carolina this spring. Daughter 
Mary Randolph is a rising sophomore at 
Duke University School of Nursing. Ruth 
teaches music in Elkin and her husband 
sells Bowmar music records and films to 

Lula Mae Motsinger has a new name 
as well as a new address. On June 6 she 
became the bride of Dr. Kenneth Douglas 
Gates of Graham, Texas, where he is a 
surgeon and senior partner in the Gra- 
ham Clinic. They live at 917 Park Street 
in Graham. 

I am a librarian at Page High School 
in Greensboro where James and I rattle 
around in a house that feels empty with 
all the children scattered. Ellen works in 
Richmond; Janet is a senior at Furman 
University where she is Vice President of 
Student Government (this summer she 
was counselor at Camp Rapputak in Frye- 
burg, Maine); and Jim will be a sopho- 
more at Clemson where he is majoring in 
applied mathematics. I see Georgia Hunt- 
ington Wyche fairly often. She spent a 
week-end with Alice and Betty Stough in 
July when in Charlotte for her niece's 

Margaret Wessell Welsh, husband Lan- 
dis and son Charles spent a night with 
us in July. They have a lovely new home 
in Wilmington (732 Forest Hill Drive). 

Please be inspired by this news and let

Eva Johnson Page is keeping busy with 
Walter III, 5 years old and in kinder- 
garten, Francey 10 in the 4th grade — 
which means scouting, PTA, dancing, ice 
skating, track, etc. She came by Salem on 
the way home from Florida last winter 
and "thought it most beautiful." 

Jane Kirk Wood wrote, "Rollins and I 
were by Smithfield last week (wish I'd 

realized you live there! ) . We had just got- 
ten John, my 7 year old from Camp More- 
head. Do you know of any 40-ers in 
Atlanta? I see Sara Bonner once or twice 
a year. We have a Salem Alumnae Meet- 
ing here in spring and fall. Many are 
very young graduates — and so cute! Best 
wishes to everyone."

what exciting place that is. 

I talked briefly with Margaret Wilson 
at Rex Hospital recently; she looked quite 
trim and fit, too! There was little time for 
talk as she was on her way to operate. 

I have had a busy year in district church 
work and helping with daughter Tenny's 
schedule. Jenny, a senior, was N. C.'s can-

Kelly Anne Smith Carter is substit^ite 
teaching in Opportunity School for retard- 
ed children. "I like it very much. Our son 
is at D"ke and we're looking forward to 
his becoming a Tar Heel. He was accepted 
at Wake Forest also and it took a lot of 
deciding to turn it down. He just might 
bring me home a Salemite some day for a 
danghter-in-Iaw. I have encouraged two 
Wilmington girls to attend Salem. I know 
they will love it as I did." Kelly's da'igh- 
ters Betty and Anne are 16 and 11. Kelly 
is also involved in Scouts, PTA and Junior 
Board of Memorial Hospital. 

The sympathy of us all goes to Kath- 
arine King Bahnson in the tragic death of 
her husband Agnew in the crash of his 
plane in Ohio last Tune. Her daughter

Betty Anne White Cleino is the proud 
holder of a Ph D degree from the Uni- 
versity of Alabama. 


We had a wonderful 20th Reunion but 
certainly did miss those who couldn't be 
with us. The 18 of us at Salem heard a 
well-founded rumor that two others wete 
in town but couldn't bear the sight of the 
rest of us! What a good time they missed. 
After picture-posing (minus Kaka 
Schwalbe and Mildred Burner who took 
Kathrine Fort to the ariport) we talked 
together for two hours. We visited the 
Book Store; Mr. Snavely remembered us 
all. Then a few of us went to Geachie's 
for coffee and sugarcake. When we finally 
got to the Old Town Club for supper, 
there were only the hardy ones: Becky 
Howell, Katy Bly Love, Nellie Sewald, my- 
self, Geachie and her husband Herman 

At class meeting I couldn't .get anyone 
to be president, so you are stuck with me 
for another five years. We got Geachie to 
agree to be vice-president. 'We are going to 
work our news-gathering differently (some- 
thing I was to start five years ago). The 
class is divided into three lists and given 
to Mildied Butner, Treva Miller and Er- 
leen Lawson to contact the first year. Next 
year they will pass their lists on to some- 
one else, and so on til our big 25th Re- 
union in 1969. When you get a card from 
any of the girls, please be quick to answer. 

Our biggest news was the announce- 
ment of Kathrine Fort's engagement to 
Paul Randolph Neel of Xenia, Ohio. The 
wedding was June 27th in Dayton. Kath- 
rine got a ready-made family of three girls, 
two in their teens and one 9. Their address: 
1021 Wenrick Dr., Xenia, Ohio. 

News from those present: Mildred But- 
ner Park in Winston has a son at The

and 11. Katy Bly Love Lumpkin was di- 
rector of kindergarten at Wake Forest Col- 
lege with four classes to supervise, a total

partment of a bank in Waterbury, Conn., 
where they moved this summer. Katherine 
McGeachy Ward has a son 1 1 and a red- 
headed daughter almost 2, and most of 
her time is spent keeping up with the 
baby. Treva Miller Jennings lives in High 
Point where her husband is a skin special- 
ist; they have two children but Treva left 
for the mountains before I found out 
their ages. Mary Louise Rhodes Davis 
came up from Winter Park, Fla.; it was 
her 25th high school reunion, too; she has 
a daughter 15 and a younger son. Kaka 
Schwalbe Leinbach's daughter Cathy 17 
took a Western tour this summer; daugh- 

ter Chrissie 14 went to South America for 
2 months; son Ted is 11; Kaka took her 
family to Alaska in '62 and stopped off 
it the Seattle Fair. Nellie Sewald Doe 
hopes to teach this year in McLean, Va. 
as her four boys, 17, 15, 12 and 10, are 
getting up in years; the two oldest play 
high school football; her husband is with 
the CIA in Washington. Tap Swinson 
Weathers, like so many of us, is a "pro- 
fessional volunteer "; she planned a World's 
Fair trip with her boy 12 and girl 9. Mary 
Lewis and Ginny Gibson also were plan- 
ning trips to the Fair. Louise Taylor Scott, 
organist for her church, active in PTA, 
trailer camps with son 13 and daughter 
5. Suzanne Willis Cook has a son 16 and 
daughters 13 and 10 — two redheads and 
a blond. I find myself serving on the 
Board of Stewards at church, county chair- 
man of Red Cross Blood Program ( ran 
into Barbara Hawkins McNeill '43 at a 
meeting ) and as an elected member of 
the city school board; just finished 2 years 
as president of PTA Council and am plan- 
ning to take it easy since we will be in 
three PTAs! Our daughter was 15 in Au- 
gust and our boys are 12 and 9. 

Here is the news we shared of friends 
who were not with us at Reunion. Mil 
Avera is still a public health nurse in 
Columbus, Ohio. Becky Cozart Smith 
moved to the other end of the block dur- 
ing Reunion; they remodeled Ed's family 
home. Mary Jane Kelly Ingram has a 2 
year old daughter. Elizabeth Ann Jones 
Watkins lives in Kinston and looks just 
marvelous; I see her at Area meetings fair- 
ly often. Dot Langdon King in Monroe has 
seven children, at last report! Peggy Jane 
White teaches in Winston after working 
at Western Elearic as a technical editor 
for several years. Margaret Winstead 
Spainhour had a new son in May, bring- 
ing their total to five. Sarah Lindley Hurd 
has four adopted children, girls 7 and 2 
and boys 6 and 4. Ella Loy Taylor Wann 
was a Mardi Gras queen this year but has 
now left New Orleans for California 
(1320 Shadow Lane, Fullerton), Margaret 
Kempton Kelly missed Reunion because 
she was in Fla. for her "baby sister's" wed- 
ding; remember — she was born when we 
were sophomores; Margaret's oldest daugh- 
ter 20 is studying nursing; she has a 
daughter 12 and sons 17 and 7; she wrote, 
"Roy is the same old Roy except that he's 
getting fat and gray." Who isn't? Carolyn 
West Lacy was on a six weeks tour of 
Europe; she has a daughter 15 and a son 
13. Berty Moore Parks had hoped to be at 
Reunion but had just moved to Pensa- 
cola, Fla. (20S0 Gait Rd.) where hus- 
band Ross is with Chemstrand; she was 
anxious to locate any Salem girls nearby. 
Jean Grantham King's daughter was presi- 
dent of Salem's sophomore class last year; 
her son is 16. Doris Scalf Spencer has a 
new address (P.O. Box 229, Koza, Okin- 
awa, Ryukyu Islands) that sent us to the 
Atlas. Carolyn Cauble Boyer is much clos- 
er to Salem since leaving Bethesda, Md. 
for 1908 Rolling Rd. in Chapel Hill. Kath- 
erine Traynham Lambeth has a new street 
address in High Point: 1026 Wellington. 
Marian Barvenick Lang wrote, "I'm bring- 
ing my daughter down to see Salem this 
year. Hope she'll like it as much as I did 
and be a member of the class of "70;" 
Nancy is 16, Wesley 7 and Kenneth 4. 

Gussie Garth stopped to tell us that 

her parents have 'V.'V.'s four children, the 
oldest of whom is her son 1~; I'm sure 
you know that V.'V. died of a heart attack 
during a pregnancy in 1956. Lucy Farmer 
died in 1958. At our 25th Reunion it 
would be appropriate to give a memorial 
gift in their honor. Let's be thinking of 

Normie Tomlin Harris had three of her 
children in exams while we were "reun- 
ing", but she wrote a letter we must share: 
"My family is composed of history's great- 
est span — oldest son Sandy is 18, Peter 
16, daughter Mallory 12, Mackie (Mary 
Katherine) 7 and blonde baby Margaret 
2%. All the children are musical; the 
piano and guitar ring through the house; 
we all sing in church choirs and glee 
clubs. I wonder how many of you married 
men who have taked you into camping in 
the woods, even with a baby in a sleeping 
bag. Amazingly enough I love it and feel 
it is probably the most enjoyable thing we 
do as a family. In winter, we ski — if you 
can picture it. I've found it's nice to be 
on the beginner's slopes while the boys ski 
the expert slopes. We've been skiing about 
8 years. Many of our friends ski in Switz- 
erland; we can't take our bunch, but Sandy 
earned the money and an invitation and 
%vent alone. Philosophically, the issues we 
feel most concerned about are religion, 
civil rights and peace. Neal and I enjoy 
theological study groups and have learned 
much from friends and leaders in these 
groups. In civil rights we have not done 
enough but believe we have brought our 
children up unprejudiced. As for peace, 
we have hoped to make "cultural hybrids" 
of the children. We have had foreign stu- 
dents live with us in the summer; a 
French boy two years ago, last year a won- 
derful Chinese girl from Taiwan, and this 
year a German boy and a French girl. In 
a big house it's easy just to move over 
and make room for one more. In Septem- 
ber our Chinese friend, Lucy Chen, was 

married and asked Neal to "give her 
away" to an attractive Chinese student. 
Looking back, Jess Byrd who taught me 
to love to read. Miss Covington who 
taught me to care about the "other Ameri- 
ca", and dear Dr. Anscombe who helped 
me toward a more mature faith will al- 
ways be close to my heart. Hope 1 haven't 
bored you with all this. Have a fine time 
and do take notes and let us know about 
each of you." 

That's just what we've done. Now be 
sure and study the picture carefully and 
see how young we all looked. Nancy Stone 
Watkins left right after luncheon so she 
wouldn't have to be in it; we can tell you 
that she wears her hair braided around her 
head, quite different from her annual 
picture, but we didn't learn any news from 
her — or from some of the rest of you. So 
please write.

The Greenbriar in West Va. 

Martha Sherrod Walker said she was a 
year late doing it but she filled a post 
card with information: "I'm working with 
the Dept. of Public Welfare as a case 
worker and love it. Being career woman, 
housekeeper, wife and mother is definitely 
a full-time job. You haven't heard of any 
30-hour days around, have you? We are 
very proud of all three children. Sherrod 
16 is a majorette. Beta Club member. Girl 
Scout and very much interested in nursing. 
Eddie 13 is in Jr. High and enjoys Scouts. 
Ginny 10 is also a Scout, and generally

Isabelle Leeper Taylor and Jack have 
announced the adoption of a very fine 
son, John Edward, born February 26. 

Reunion day at Salem was quite sedate 
for 22 members of our class. We thought 
we all looked grand and not the least like 
the collective mothers of 52 collective chil- 
dren! Bitsy Green Elrod even has grand- 
children — whom she inherited when she 
married a year ago. Bet Epps Pearson has 
the oldest child, a boy 14, and Mary Mot- 
singer Shepherd the youngest, 6 months. 
During lunch a few of us were recognized 
by Winona still going strong waiting ta- 
bles in the refectory. Gab was mostly about 
families and how we had all gotten fatter 
but looked better. No pondreous decision 
was made affecting world affairs but we 
all find ourselves taking on more responsi- 
bility in community life than we ever ex- 
pected. Judge Mary Gaither Whitener 
added a touch of dignity to our gathering 
and told some unbelievable stories about 
her days in court. 

The class received its usual telegram 
from Betty Holbrook in Great Neck, N. Y. 
and Carolyn Taylor Anthony in Brooklyn, 
both of which added a worldly touch to 
an otherwise ordinary bunch of good-look- 
ing graduates of 15 years past! At class 
meeting we agreed to make a BIG thing 
of our 20th yeai, on the theory that more 
of us will be free to leave home for the 
week-end. Officers serving till then are 
Eaton SherriU president, Ann Spencer vice 
president, Tootsie Pethel secretary-treasur- 
er, Nancy Wray White fund agent, Joan 
Brown historian and Mary Shepherd cor- 

Joan has already written trying to lo- 
cate the scrapbook and bring it up to date 
on reunion news, wires, photos. If you can 
help her, her address is Mrs. Edward A. 
Brown, Rt. 8, Box 674-E, Salisbury, N. C 

As I begin this job as correspondent, 
it is my goal to have at least one "bit" of 
news from every member of the class be- 
fore our big 20th Reunion. Therefore, I 
beg each of you, whenever you have news 
of yourself or a classmate, send it to me 


any time of year. Thanks to those who

Joan Hassler Brown and Ed have chil- 
dren 9 and 6 and one due in mid-October. 

Derry McKennie Bortner wrote, "The 
thing that gets me most about class notes 
is that once '49 was at the end of the BUL- 
LETIN; now we're grouped near the front! 
Visible proof of on-going age, I suppose." 
The Bortners have adopted a 9 month old 
lass, Laura Clarissa; they have a son. Ray, 
Jr. In selling cookies this year Derry found 
Frances Reznick Lefkowitz's sister, who 
said Fran adores having a baby in the 
house. Fran, let us hear from you. 

Tootsie Pethel's husband took more mu- 
sic courses this summer at Union Theologi- 
cal Seminary in N. Y. Look for Tootsie's 
reunion poem up front in the BULLETIN. 

Our hats are off to Peggy Wharton for 
a fine job as our president. Her new daugh- 
ter is Emily. The family visited Peggy's 
folks in Bluefield. 

Dawson Millikin Lee missed our re- 
union because her husband was running 
for office that day. Dawson co'ildn't vote 
for him, anyway, for she's a Republican 
and he's a Democrat. Did he get elected? 

Patsy Moser Sumner, Helen Brown Hob- 
son and Jeanne Dungan Greear recently 
ran into each other when they went to get 
their daughters at Girl Scout Camp. Patsy's 
husband Ted has been promoted in his 
bank. Jeanne, Cal and their three girls 
moved into their new Charlotte home 
(4009 Beresford Rd. — the same as they 
had built in Gastonia, with improvements) 
late in June and efficient Jeanne had roses 
already blooming in the yard. 

Betty Wolff Boyd wrote, "Basil, our 
two older girls and I spent a month tour- 
ing the West Coast and recommend the 
trip to every family. We still wonder who 
enjoyed Disneyland the most — a really fan- 
tastic place. We all would love to live in 
San Francisco. But our favorite stop was 
Grand Teton Park where daughter Bran- 
don 10 got a 3-pound Mackinaw trout." 

Martha Brannock Sanders' husband Hal 
and their 3 children live in Georgia (267 
Cambridge Ave., Decatur) since Hal was 
transferred to Atlanta. Martha taught men- 
tally retarded children in Charlotte and 
hopes to teach in Ga. 

Bett Epps Pearson's son Martin had his 
first teenage party; Bett said she enjoyed 
it even more than he. 

Bitsy Green Elrod says, "No dramatic 

news — just vegetable gardening, canning 

and freezing ( it took two college degrees 

for that ) , and manufacturing wine ( free

samples for all 49-crs). Yesterday I talked 
long distance with Patsy Sumner and Joan 
Brown. Both are fine and chasing summer- 
free children." Bitsy was married one 
month and became a grandmother the next 
month. Of the EIrod's wine, Patsy Sumner 
wrote, "Bitsy and husband have their own 
vineyard and are quite the connoisseurs. 
Bitsy had several of us over before Re- 
union for a wine-tasting luncheon; the 
wine was as good as the food!" 

Diane Payne Arrowood and a friend 
opened Rural Hall Kindergarten this fall. 
With 20 already enrolled in spring, Diane 
was looking forward to the new adventure. 
They spent some time in the mountains 
around Asheville. 

Nell Penn Watt Spencer reports a sum- 
mer with her family and a visit to her 
brother in Martinsville when she had din- 
ner with Liza Smith Woodson. The Spen- 
cers vacationed at Myrtle Beach, and for 
the first time, Nell didn't see a single 
Salem girl there. 

Bonnie Frazier was also at Myrtle Beach 
and visited her family in W-S. She is with 
Delta Air Lines in Dallas, Texas, seeing 
people get where they're going. 

Jane Church Fuller took a lon.g vaca- 
tion with Don and the two children at 
Don's home in Burlington, Vt. They toured 
the Fair and New England on the way. 

Margery Crowgey Coogler wrote, "I al- 
ways look forward to the BULLETIN. 
We're still in Chile and are anxiously 
awaiting the outcome of the September 
presidential elections." Her BULLETIN 
turned up in spring with pages missing!

The Shepherds had a different summer. 
It's quite a change not to go to work every 
day. Larry has taken the summer off and 
we have been busy. Right after school was 
out we chaperoned 4 teenage girls to 
Myrtle Beach. Larry, a high school teacher, 
was used to this age group, but it still was 
quite an experience for us. Our Jean loved 
the beach and all the attention from the 
girls and their friends. Most of the sum- 
mer Larry has been building a playroom, 
closet and bath in our basement. In July 
we bought a tent-trailer and roamed the 
mountains seeing Linville Caverns and 
the Smokies. If any of you camp, we'd love 
to hear where you have been. 

Now, you enjoyed reading about your 
classmates; remember, they wlil enjoy hear- 
ing about you. So get the cards and letters 
rolling to Mary.

Two very interesting letters come next. 
From Bob and Polly Harrop Montgomery 
in Taiwan: "We are following the news 
from home with a great deal of interest as 
the new Civil Rights Law goes into ef- 
fect. Sometimes we missionaries go through 
'culture shock' as we make the change to 
living in a culture that is so different from 
the one in which we feel 'at home.' We 
might say that today many people in the 
South are going through 'culture shock' 
as they see familiar patterns passing on. 
This letter is simply to let you know we 
are thinking about you. We are glad we 
now have the opportunity of standing in 
awe of you, for you have often put us on 
a pedestal. Now we want to put you on a 
pedestal as you do great things." 

Ruth Lenkoski Adams wrote, "I had 
planned to visit Salem in May with my 
husband and daughter Mary Lee 5. Only 
the stork could have cancelled my plans! 
And it did. Our long-awaited second child 
arrives in September. Recently Claire 
Phelps Clark and I had a reunion after 15 
years silence. It made 'those days' seem like 
just yesterday. She looks fine and has three 
boys to keep her busy. I am very pleased 
with and interested in Salem's progress. 
It's my ardent wish that the growing num- 
ber of Salemites in this area ( Port (Chester, 
N. Y. ) might meet at least once a year. 
Our alma mater is not widely recognized 
here and may lack the status she enjoys 
in N. C. Yet those of us who love Salem 
and the unique college experience she of- 
fers could and should shed some light!

cal engineer at Du Pont. 

Ann Pleasants Collawn wrote a long 
letter, "not for publication" she said, but 
just to let us know that she hadn't drooped 
dead." Her husband is a doctor in Char- 
lotte and their children are Jimmy 4 and 
Anna 2. 

Dorothy Reynolds Rosser and family 
have been in their new home at 4727

Betty Leppert Gerteiny and Alfred are 
the parents of a new son, born May 30th. 
The announcement came from Rye, N.Y., 
but I couldn't read Bessie's address. 

Another birth announcement — now rath-

Evelyn Tatum reported that she received 
her Master's Degree in Education from the 
University of Florida in August '63. She is 
a member of Kappa Delta Pi ( honorary

Congratulations on these honors. I'm sure 
Fort Lauderdale is happy to have her in 
its school system. 

Faye Stickney Murray and family moved 
to Long Beach, Calif, a year ago. They 
were to be there 'til January '64. Don is 
an independent consulting engineer. 

Tom and Mary Elizabeth Elrick Everett

family and friends in Rocky Mount. 

Ann Rixey Sikes, from whom I haven't 
heard in thirteen years, wrote that they 
recently moved into a larger house in a 
suburb of Cincinnati. Husband Jay is 
with Chatfield Paper Corp. Their chil- 
dren are David in 7th grade, Ann Page 
in 5th and Stephen in 3rd. Ann says 
that bit about "what-do-you-do-now-that- 
the-kids-are-in-school" is an exploded myth. 
I agree.

From the Charlotte Observer article by 
Dorothy Ridings, Staff Writer: "It was a 
rainy Saturday in March, and Queens Col- 
lege assistant professor Mary Faith Carson 
was in her office grading papers. She took 
a break to go to the campus post office, 
as I had been doing for two weeks with 
bated breath!' 

"On that day, the waiting was over. In 
her mailbox was a letter from Princeton 
University, notifying her that she had been 
accepted as a candidate for a Ph.D degree 
in the university's department of religion 
— the first woman accepted for admission 
by the department. 

"A handful of other women have been 
admitted to Princeton for graduate study 
in other departments .... It's been only 
four years since the centuries-old, all-male 
university cautiously opened its doors to 
women, a policy that one university of- 
ficial termed 'a great departure.' 

"But it won't be the first time that the 
popular Queens College teacher has been 
the first of her sex to do something . . . 
She was the first woman to receive a bach- 
elor of divinity degree from Union Theo- 
logical Seminary, Richmond, Va. When 
she won a fellowship from Union upon 
graduation, she was accordingly the first 
woman to be awarded one. 

"This fellowship, which she is using 
to attend Princeton, had to be termed a 
'special fellowship' for all the study grants 
at Union had been specifically designated 
for men .... 

"Miss Carson, whose popularity with 
Queens students was proved when they 
dedicated the last yearbook to her, will 
leave for Princeton in August. It will take 
her three years to complete work for her 
Ph.D. . . . She plans to study the influ- 
ences on Christianity at its period of in- 
ception, which will primarily involve study 
of the Old Testament and early church 
history. Miss Carson's main reason for 
wanting to attend Princeton was the broad 
scope of the Ph.D. program: 'They re- 
quire more classwork.' Too, she knew she 
would be able to take advantage of the 
library and faculty at Princeton Seminary 
which adjoins the university campus. 

'I had to make a case that Princeton has 
the best program for what I was interested 
in studying,' she said, reaffirming a uni- 
versity spokesman's statement that all of 
the six or eight women who have been 
admitted to the university have been 'spe- 
cial cases, women who couldn't get what 
they needed elsewhere.' 

"When she finishes the Ph.D. program, 
she plans to go back to teaching — although 
when she first came to Queens, 'I wasn't 
sure I could teach; I'd never tried.' But the 
last three years have been 'just fabulous. 
I love every phase of college life,' adding 
under her breath, 'except grading papers.' 

"For the next few years, though, the 
teacher will be a student. And during that 
time, she'll be adding to the Princeton 
campus in more ways than one. As one 
university official put it, with a grin in 
his voice, 'It's no longer a monastery 
around here.' " 

Dedication to Mary Faith Carson 

From the Queen's College CORONET: 
For her assistance in helping us to find 
ourselves as individuals and then to lose 
ourselves in ideas and truths more endur- 
ing and significant than we, the students 
of Queens College dedicate the 1964 

Her presence is a welcome but disturb- 
ing force on the Queens campus. She has 
had the audacity to make us think, to make 
us doubt that which we had believed indu- 
bitable, and to ask those questions about 
ourselves which we do not like to answer. 
Yet, she has never permitted us to doubt 
without inspiring us to believe . . . 

She joined the faculty just three short 
years ago. Within days, however, we all 
recognized Miss Carson by her pleated 
skirts and villager blouses, her familiar 
weejuns, and her cheerful smile. . . 

During her first year. Miss Carson was 
seen most frequently in the library study- 
ing and preparing for classes. Her sense of 
responsibility to us . . . and her dedication 
to teaching are reflected in every lecture 
and discussion. Students in her classes 
strive to be prepared for the inevitable 
question, "What are the issues and im- 
plications involved.'' " One student has re- 
marked, "We are aware that Miss Carson 
studies, thinks, and questions with us . . . 
her classes are exciting experiences . . . 
Her enthusiasm is contagious, even at 8 
o'clock in the morning." 

. . . She possesses a rare talent of being 
able to be a good friend to students with- 
out losing her identity as teacher . . . She 




is never too busy to converse freely, simp- 
ly, and honestly. 

. . . Who, if any, can forget or forgive 
her for making us ask ... of ourselves, 
"Is this then enough?" As she leaves to 
become the first candidate for the Doaor 
of Philosophy degree in religion at Prince- 
ton University, she answers this disturbing 
question for us all.

nothing, but checks — or so it seems. We're 
all well and enjoying our 'new' home. Saw

classes that progress to Class 1 ) in Foreign 
Service. He got his Ph.D. in June. Their 
children are Anne 10, Sally 8, Wm. Hen-

With joy we report the arrival of a 
second son, William Stuart, on May 5th 
to John and Boots Hudson Beaman. 

And now to share with you our Re- 
union of May 30th. There were 22 of us 
returning though we didn't all get in the 
class picture. 

Among the first to arrive were Lu Long 
Ogburn Medlin and Sarah Sue Tisdale 
Ferrell. Lu Long had left her three with 
Sarah's two children for the day, but Tom- 
my and Vernon seemed none the worse 
that evening at dinner. The Medlins told 
of a delightful two-week Carribean cruise 
on a private yacht in February. 

Anne Moye Mayo reported a recent 
Florida vacation. Having four children 
certainly must agree with Anne; she is 
her same calm, even lovelier, self. 

Up from Charlotte were Alice McNeely 
Herring and Carol Glaser DeWese who 
came "stag." Alice said she hadn't been 
away from her two small sons (both under 
two) in so long, she brought Carol as her 
chaperone. Both De Wese children are 
in school this year and Carol plans to take 
up ice skating. 

Barbara Allen drove over from Chanel 
Hill — I repeat drove. She hasn't had her 
car too long but says she can really get 
around now. Barbara reports that "Puddin" 
Bass is supervisor of the private patient 
clinic at N.C. Memorial Hospital in Chapel 
Hill. Wish we could hear from you some- 
time, "Puddin." 

Ann Bondurant Young came for lunch- 
eon but had to return to Wilson in the 
afternoon. Her year-old son was just re- 
covering from pneumonia. Bonnie, presi- 
dent of the Wilson Alumnae Club, was 
on stage at the business meeting that 

Also attending an ill child was Jean 
Calhoun Turlington who was unable to 
come at all. Her son Tom had encephalitic 
mumps but was recovering very nicely at 
last report. 

Jane Alexander Cooper and Mary Joyce 
Wilson McLain were also present for the 
luncheon. Jane and "Piffles" have only 
improved in ten years desoite their busy 
schedules and lives as mothers. 

Up from Wilson were Mabel Tavlor 
Hesmer and "Skeet" who expected their 
fifth child in August. Also planning an 
August arrival were Jean Shope Kennett 
and Stan. The Kennetts moved to Greens- 
boro this summer (1813 Downing St., 
Dover Hills ) ; Stan is now with Burling- 
ton Industries. 

Our alumna from farthest away was 
Joan Shope Bennett with husband Mai. 
The Bennetts left three children in An- 
nandale, Va., and drove down especially 
for reunion. 

Coming from Reidsville for dinner were 
Irvin and Dot Smothers Richardson (our 
class sec. -treas. -fund agent and pres. of the 
Reidsville Alumnae Club. Bob and Frankie 
Strader Glenn of Burlington also came 
for dinner. Frankie said having a son and 
twin daughters kept her busy — an under- 
statement, I'm sure. 

Representing the Raleigh girls was Betsy 
Forrest Denton (our class veep) who spent 
the week-end with Molly Quinn Booe. 
Betsy is now secretary to a life insurance 
agent. She reported an exciting week-end 
at the Kentucky Derby last May. 

Edith Flager Ruth and I drove over 
from High Point. Edith happened to bring 
some hilarious 10-year-old picfires (we 
won't tell who was in them) as well as 
some beautiful snapshots of her 10-month- 
old son. 

Elynor Fishel Rights was present for 
the activities, and Lucy Harris Poulsen and 
Henry joined us for dinner. Alison Britt 
Barron was elected our next reunion chair- 
man, and we hope she'll have twice as 
many people for whom to plan. 

Jimmy and Doris McMillan Eller were 
also with us. Doris is makin,g quite a suc- 
cess of her handmade lampshades — a half- 
dozen can be seen in the Alumnae House. 
We are proud of her talent. 

We are also proud that the new Alum- 
nae Director is one of our own, Edith 
Tesch Vaughn. The class of '54 will miss 
Leiia Graham Marsh and all the unsung 
kindnesses she performed for us. She was 
especially good to this erratic reporter, 
and we wish for her only the best. If you 
will support me, I will do my best for our 
class and Edith. 

And now my sincere and public appre- 
ciation to Molly Quinn Booe and Nathan 
for all their help. Molly, with Sarah S"e, 
made all the arrangements for dinner. We 
had a private room at the Twin City Club 
which we used for socializing and quite 
some "chit-chat." Dinner was an elegant 
and elaborate buffet in the main dining 
room, and some of us (the "younger" 
ones) enjoyed dancing to a combo. It 
could not have been better planned and 
certainly could not have been done from 
High Point. It seems to fall to the lot of 
the Winston-Salem girls to be "hostesses," 

CLASS OF 1954 

and we want you to know how much we 
appreciate your generous hospitality. 

All present seemed to enjoy the day 
tremendously, and we agreed that no one 
looked any older or more tired than that 
memorable alumnae day ten years ago. In 
the next issue I will share with you the 
letters I received from many girls who 
could not attend but sent news. 

Mary Elizabeth Elrick Everett sent news 
of sister Joan's marriage on March 22nd 
to Dean Burton (5530 Dudley Court, 
Arvada, Colo. ) , a research chemist with 
Dow Chemical. Our best wishes to Joan 
and Dean. By next deadline (Nov. 15th) 
we hope Connie will have first-hand news 
from them. 

Ever on the job for '54, Connie called 
from the hospital to report the arrival of 
Patricia Kornegay on July 28th — their 
third daughter. Poppa Bob and No. 1 
(and only) son Bofj appear quite content 
with their continuing role as the men in 
the family. 

And here, for all to see, the class of 
'54 expresses its appreciation to Connie, 
our now-and-forever president-historian- 
correspondent. Her efforts in helping us 
continue the friendships made at Salem are 
best measured by the happy chatter at re- 
union and anywhere else we just happen 
to meet.

Box 6tl 

Scafoi'd, Delaware 

This report is from Betsy Liles Gant. 

Getting the news for Emily has been 
more exhilirating than a dozen long dis- 
tance phone calls. I promised Em, busy 
with her move to Delaware and her new 
baby, that I postively would not devote 
the column to how cute my children are 
and/or the rigors of toilet training. So 
thank you for the answers to my scatteting 
of post cards. What a treat to hear from 

Peggy McCanless Efird says that Frank, 
Jr. arrived June 14 just thtee weeks late, 
but was the biggest and prettiest in the 
nursery. Her little girls, Jan 6 and Cindy 
5, are thrilled. The Efirds live in New 
Bern (Elizabeth Ave. and D) where Frank 
is personnel manager of the new Stanly 

Ann Mixon Reeves announces the arrival 
of number five. Robert Charles was born 
July 16th and weighed 8 lbs., 9 oz. 

A Christmas card (yes, I've dug way 
back) from Bobbi Kuss Stabile was a joy, 
even if it was old. They are living in the 
Lehigh Valley where Jerry practices thor- 
acic and cardiovasculer surgery. They "have 
a grandiose old apartment with interesting 
shaped rooms that we've scraped to the 
plaster and had such fun redecorating. 
Judy is in nursery school and loves it. Am 
so happy and feel so lucky." Haven't the 
Stabiles a new arrival.-' (Yes. From Salem's 
Correspondent-General Dr. Gramley came 
news of Jana Sue Stabile born Augst 5.) 

Another wedding! Francine Pitts became 
Mrs. John I. Bachman on the 18th of July. 
Her new address is Box 92, Mainland, Pa., 
an hour NW of Philadelphia "in the 
Mennonite section — near the Dutch — beau- 

tiful. Don't know who is more excited — 
the boys or I. Jack is a wonderful wonder." 

Betty Lynn Wilson Robinson's fourth

are Amanda in 2nd grade, Charles 5, and 
Ben 18 months.

The stork will also visit Pat Marsh 
Sasser. She and Dr. Pat, general practi- 
tioner in Goldsboro, have Ginger 6 and 
Rickey 4. 

Margaret Blakeney Bullock's fourth 
child, third son, William Winston was 
born May 23, 1963. Oldest son Leonard, 
Jr. is now in school. "Bebe", their only 
girl, went to camp with Leonard this sum- 
mer, leaving just two at home — for awhile. 

Barbara Smith Huss has four children 
(5,4,3,2). Hunter is still in the Air Force 
flying, stationed in Washington at Tacoma. 

Sue Jones Davis expects a baby on or 
very near Alan's second birthday, Oct. 2. 

A card with her new address (2128 
67th St., Lubbock, Texas) brings us up 
to date on Diane Knott Driver's family. 
Diane Bryan is 8, Vickie 4, and twins 
Randy and Rusty 2. They have just re- 
turned from 2 years in England and "are 
very happy to be home and settled. Ex- 
pect to be here about 4 years." 

In June Barbara White Peacock and 
family moved to Chattanooga, the home 
office of Dixie Merchandising Co.. where 
Ward is vice president. Little Ward is in 
2nd grade, Steve 6 and Nancy 2. 

A good letter came from Rooney Barnes 
Robinson. "Johnny and I went with the 
Virginia bankers on a cruise to Bermuda 
in June. We had an unbelievable trip. I 
felt as if I'd gone to heaven." Our boys 
Rob 9, Steve 6 and Wotth 3 are a cross 
between energy and radiation. What they 
don't tear up they fall into." Johnny is 
head of domestic sales fot N. C. National 
Bank in the southeastern region. 

A letter and postcard came from Mary 
Anne Raines Goslen. Wish all of you 
could read them. As she wrote, on her 
birthday. Tinkle Millican, visiting in 
Greensboro, called to say hello. She is 
living with Phyllis Stinnett in Richmond 
and both stay busy. Raines described a 
fabulous trip to Lajolla, Calif, for her 
brother's wedding. Her mother has remar- 
ried and is living in Tokyo, Japan, until 
1966. Mary Anne still has fingers in many 
projects, including teaching a Church 
School class for women. 

Dottie Allen Crone gathered news for 
us in Winston. She wrote that Sally Anne 
Hudson Lewis and Dr. Max with their 
two little boys are living in Statesville. 
Pat Moore has done graduate work at 
UNC-G; studied under Daniel Ericourt, 
renowned French pianist; was the hard 
working accompanist of the Governor's 
School '63; and in March was married to 
George Taylor May. He is with Rawley & 
Apperson, office supplies, and they live 
at 1921 Gaston Street, in Winston-Salem. 


In June, the class of '55 in the Raleigh 
vicinity had a reunion spearheaded by 
Roseanne Worthington Pruneau and Ann 
Lang Blackmon. Somehow they managed 
to get 11 of us together at the same time. 
How much fun we did have! These were 

Jackie Nielsen Brasher told us about 
her four, Kathy 7, Bud 6, Neil 4, and 
Drew 2. Jackie is teaching a double grade 
(5-6) this fall in Kinston. 

Jane Brown Pritchard looked pretty in 
an aqua-blue creation she had whipped 
up. She is in a new house: 135 Edgewood 
Dr., Henderson. 

Jean Currin Watkins, a new Junior 
Leaguer in Raleigh, had new house pros- 
pects. Her little girls are Ava 6 and Treva 

Helen Carole Watkins, John and boys 
like Goldsboro. She sees Pat Marsh Sasser 

Becky Powers Hines, with good-looking 
new hair-do, has Becky 8 and Ken 6. 

Norma Spikes Barrett had just moved 
to town. Her little boy Russ has a head 
of curls and is a darling. Their address is 
119 Drewery Lane. 

Ann Lang Blackmon, visiting in Kins- 
ton, enjoys her new home in a Birming- 
ham suburb. Her daughter Lang 6 is a 
great science-nature enthusiast and imme- 
diately won the heart of Rosanne's Chris 
5, who feels likewise about bugs. 

Emily Hall Bigger took us by her house 
after lunch. She and Bill look forward to 
our 10th reunion next spring. 

From Burlington came Sara Outland 
DeLoache and me. Sara is doing an ex- 
cellent job as president of the Burlington 
Service League. 

We all enjoyed Rosanne's living room, 
admired her family room addition and 
loved her three: Leslie 1 is the image of 
her mommie; blond Mary Ellen is 3; and 
Chris 5 looks like his father. All in all, 
a terrific day! 

Now, if our new alumnae head lady 
hasn't cut us off at the pass for being so 
lengthy, Emily adds a postscript. 

Many thanks to Betsy for supplying 
news for this issue. 

Carolyn Kneeburg Chappell and Dr. Tim 
have adopted their second child. Five- 
weeks-old Katherine Elizabeth arrived in 
their home July 2 to join little Douglas 3. 

Louise Fike has been keeping the golf 
courses busy. On a card to Betsy she told 
of two months playing in Fla. last winter 
and said she loved the life. She was quar- 
ter-finalist in the 62nd North and South 
Women's Amateur Golf Championship at 
Pinehurst, and in June she won the N. C. 
Women's Golf Association championship 
at Whispering Pines. Congratulations! 

Our second daughter Suzanne Holland 
arrived June 8th. She is a real pleasure, 
especially since she skipped that 2 AM 
feeding from the beginning. Caroline is 
in first grade and William in pre-kinder- 
garten. I am busy with church work and 
the kindergarten board. 

This is our 10th reunion year, so every- 
one begin planning now to attend. We had 
such a good 5th reunion. I have talked 
with several who are ready to go! I'll 
have a special letter in the mail to you 

Don't forget the Alumnae Fund. Havc

short reunion in the Alumnae House liv- 
ing room and introducd husband Jens to 
her former teachers. They were on their 
way back to Norway aftet six months in 
Brazil. Temperatures in the high 90s, elec- 
tricity only 20 hours a day (a daily mess 
in the refrigerator), a severe shortage of 
water and a near-by revolution didn't dull 
her enthusiasm for the small village near 
San Paulo. Lynne had some success with 
Portuguese, even used verbs in tenses when 
talking with her maid. Now back home in 
Oslo she is engaged in formal study of 
Norwegian. It was good to see her and 
meet Jens.

The Reunion was a huge success due 
largely to the efforts of MarciUe 'Van Liere 
Deane and Ann Brinson Hensel. It was 
good having so many back, but we missed

election we came up with the following 

officers: Patty Kimbrough King president, 
Mary Lois James HiUiard is the alternate 
in case I retire, Ann Brinson Hensel vice 
president, Lucinda Oliver Denton secre- 
tary-tteasurer, and Anne Summerell fund

Tyllered wrote, "I enjoy the BULLETIN, 
also news from Marilyn Shull Brown, who 
sees a lot of Salem girls. I taught in Stock- 
holm schools and in 1963 completed my 
teacher's education with a nice record in 

CLASS OF 1959 

the "Tern of Proof" program. Last July 
my husband was appointed full professor 
in the technical university in Lund, and 
of course I am very proud of him. In 
February we moved to Sunnanvag 2 F, 
Lund, Sweden (just across the strait from 
Copenhagen, Denmark ) . We also changed 
our name to Tyllered to avoid confusion 
with all the other Ohlssons. The name 
comes from the farm where Gunnar's fore- 
fathers lived. Our greatest piece of news 
is the birth of our son in April 1964. I 
have a six-months leave of absence, and 
time and the boy will determine whether 
or not I shall return to teaching." 

Jane Rostan McBryde and two sons 
spent some of the summer in Shelby vis- 
iting her parents and managed to see sev- 
eral classmates. 

From Texas Sue Cooper Huffman writes 
that Margaret MacQueen Grayson and 
Dick joined them in San Antonio prior to 
departure to Germany. Sue spent two weeks

ters. Last year Sue taught college freshman 
English and wrote Miss Byrd she loved it. 

Susan Mclntyre Goodman and family 
have moved to Charlotte where Johnny is

Sarah Price Whitty's excellent article in 
the last BULLETIN was accompanied by an 
equally good letter bringing us up to date 
on their move from NYC back to the 
Outer Banks where they had "met, co'irted 
and married", and where Katherine Eliza- 
beth, now 2, entered their family. Last 
si'mmer John played a lead in "Unto These 
Hills," and Sarah, in addition to her danc-

even got to play it one night. "However, 
once you've been in the "Lost Colony" 
your heart remains with that dear old show

A New Scholarship 

In 1960 Thomas H. Everett, of Luther- 
ville, Maryland, initiated a scholarshio in 
honor of his wife, Mary Elizabeth Elrick 
Everett. Class of 1951, who was a scholar- 
ship holder while at Salem. Officially 
titled the "Thomas and Mary Elizabeth 
(Elrick) Everett Scholarship", it will sym- 
bolize, through its annual award to future 
Salem students, a continual repayment of 
the scholarship Mary Lib once held. 

This fall Dr. Gramley announced that 
Mr. and Mrs. Fran T. ShuU, of Nassau in 
the Bahamas, have initiated the establish- 
ment of a similar scholarshio at the Col- 
lege in honor of their daughter, Marilyn 
Shull Brown (Mrs. David S.) a graduate 
of the Class of 1959. 

'While at Salem, Marilyn was a scholar- 
ship holder in music, graduating with a 
Bachelor of Music degree in piano. She 
was selected for 'Who's "Who in American 
Colleges and Universities, admitted to the 
Order of the Scorpion, achieved Class 
Honors, was active in Student Government, 
Pierettes and many other phases of camous 
life. Upon graduation she was chosen first 
alumnae president of her class. 

As an honor to Marilyn, her parents 
have initiated this new scholarship to 
represent repayment to Salem of the one 
she held as a student.

ganized a recreation program for the many 
little children who couldn't get into a 
school; too few schools and teachers and 
only five years education available in the 
area. They hoped to learn to raise white 
rats properly and teach several families, 
since the University of 'Valle pays a good 
sum for their use in medical research. They 
campaigned to stimulate interest in the 
four libraries donated by the U.S. Infor- 
mation Service. Their barrio is rather, 
40,000 people, divided into four sections

Gerry found her Broadway-minded fellows

A good group of twenty arrived for our 
first Salem reunion. No one seemed to 
have changed drastically; we recognized 
each other at first glance on the porch of 

Main Hall where we registered. But our 
lives have altered greatly since college 
days, we discovered in the chatter at Lunch- 
eon, where we sat at the usual tables with 
Marie serving. "To make us feel more at 
home, the graduating class, our "little sis- 
ters," sang, "Happy Birthday, Betsy Davis" 
( though she was not there to blush ) . 

In the afternoon our business consisted 
mostly of electing Ann Sellars Goodsell to 
be our reporter to the BULLETIN. I urge 
that you send her your news promptly and 
frequently these next three years. We de- 
cided to plan an afternoon or evening 
party to follow our big fifth reunion in 

I asked Dr. Gramley if our class gift 
had been spent yet. He thought it was set 
aside for the Arts Building cornerstone. 
No one ever officially notified me as to 
this matter, but I think the cornerstone 
seems important and worthwhile enough 
for us to claim, so let's consider that mat- 
ter settled. 

We enjoyed the day. I know those who 
could not make it, after reading this news, 
will begin now making plans for 1966!

Becky Boswell Smith, with her reporter's 
nose for news, called the Alumnae House 
to bring us up to date on some of the 
doings of '63. 

On June 12 Becky was married to Wil-

been enjoying Becky's feature contribu-

from how women feel about mowing grass 
to research on all the places tiny heels can 
get caught (yes, she included Salem's 
brick walks.) Now she and William are

transferred by REA Express.

Mary Jane Crowell Bynum, in a newsy 
letter to Miss Byrd, said, "We drove to El 
Paso where Harold reported for Army 
duty on May 7. We stopped in New Or- 
leans and continued along the Gulf Coast. 
Even better than our trip has been living 
in El Paso. In early September we go to 
Germany for 18 months. We are thrilled 
by the Army's choice and look forward 
to doing a lot of travelling. I hope to 
teach in the school for military depend- 
ents. Many of my pre-conceived notions 
of dull uniformed men have been proved 
wrong. Officers with whom Harold works 
are intelligent and far-sighted men. It 
really makes me feel good knowing these 
are men who make some decisions that 
affect us all."

LiBBY Jerome Holder '35, reviewer 

The reviews following represent just pleasant reading which can take you 
travelling in time back as far as the seventeenth century, in distance across the 
state of North Carolina to the Outer Banks, and in imagination to the forest 
world of a small bat, all without stirring from a comfortable chair. 

All three writers represented by the books reviewed have been brushed with 
North Carolina tar. Elizabeth Gray Vining, author of TAKE HEED OF 
LOVING ME, is the widow of Morgan Vining, a former member of the faculty 
of the University of North Carolina, and was herself at one time a member of 
the staff of the University's School of Library Science. As Elizabeth Janet Gray, 
she is well known as the author of distinguished children's books, and as Mrs. 
Vining, she achieved considerable recognition as the tutor to the Crown Prince 
Akihito of Japan in the years immediately following World War IL In the 
novel, TAKE HEED OF LOVING ME ( Lippincott, 1964, $5.95), Mrs. Vining 
has recreated the world of John Donne, the English poet and preacher who was 
just coming to manhood in the last years of the reign of Elizabeth I. This is a 
portrait in fiction of John Donne the family man, although by her ability to 
portray a mood and a picture of the London of the early seventeenth century, the 
author has sent this one reader at least to other books in quest of further knowl- 
edge of the political situation, the religious controversies, of the time, and to 
John Donne's poetry and sermons. The book is obviously carefully written with 
many interesting insights into the daily life of the period. The reader feels great 
sympathy for John, the struggling young man who lost favor and his job by his 
secret marriage to the charming Anne More, and shares his distress at the mount- 
ing debts which come with a household increased almost yearly by a new baby. 
The book ends with the death of Anne as John begins to find his destiny in 
the ministry he fought against for so long. 

Entirely different in time and place, but equally successful in evoking vivid 
pictures, and here even the smell of salt sea air, is Ben Dixon MacNeill's SAND 
ROOTS (John F. Blair, 1963, $5.95.) Ben Dixon MacNeill spent the last years 
of his life on the Outer Banks, and the book jacket blurb explains that SAND 
ROOTS was written before the successful THE HATTER ASM AN (1958), but 
was not published until after MacNeill's death and until after it had been cut and 
edited by H. Leon Gatlin, III of the faculty of St. Andrews Presbyterian College. 
SAND ROOTS is a novel of the people living in and around Buxton, North 
Carolina, in the middle years of World War II. It is a tale of the domination 
of the sea and the conflict which is inevitable when a young native of Buxton 
refuses to follow the traditional pattern of joining the Coast Guard by entering 
the Army Air Corps instead, hoping to avenge his father's death at the hands of 
a gunner on a German submarine off the North Carolina coast. Captain Daniel 
Gray is on his way home for ninety days' leave as the story opens, and before 
the last page, some of the most vivid portraits in recent fiction have been skill- 
fully drawn. The boy Jerry and Chief Warrant Officer William Henry Ragland, 
as well as a number of minor characters, are well worth meeting even if Danny 
Gray himself never seems quite real and the book's dramatic ending seems con- 
trived. But Dixon MacNeill knew and loved the people who live in the flashing 
light of the Lighthouse, and he takes his readers right down the sandy beach to 
the house where sea mullet is cooking on a hickory plank. It is a good trip. 

A North Carolinian by adoption is Randall Jarrell, poet, critic, novelist, 
member of the faculty at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and 
now turned writer of juveniles. Although he has translated fairy tales from the 
German in recent years, two books off the press this past spring are his first 
original books for children. THE BAT-POET (Macmillan, 1964, $2.75) is far 
superior to the other book, THE GINGERBREAD RABBIT, and it is a shame 
they appeared so close together that they might be confused in a buyer's mind. 
THE BAT-POET, beautifully illustrated by Maurice Sendak, is a highly imag- 
inative story of a small bat who writes poetry which he recites to his friend the 
chipmunk. The little forest animals are distinct personalities, and children who 
have liked WIND IN THE WILLOWS, WINNIE-THE-POOH, and other books 
where human characteristics are exhibited by little creatures will like this book, 
too. And mothers, grandmothers, fond aunts who are lucky enough to know a 
child willing to listen can enjoy the poetic prose of Randall Jarrell as he writes 
of the work of a small fellow poet. 







Gifts from the Alumnae Associa- 
tion and from the Winston-Salem 
Club helped bring about the Chorale 
Ensemble's Singing Tour of Europe. 
As a report, we offer three comments 
from distinctly different sources. The 
degree in which they suport and com- 
plement one another is, to say the very 
least, interesting — and 


President of the 

German Moravian Church's board, 

speaks of the Ensemble's tour: 

Last Sunday (August 9th) we had 
the privilege here to listen to the choir 
of [the] College performing a concert 
in our Bad Boll Moravian Church. It 
is a pleasure for me to relate . . . this 
special event. Our church [was] over- 
crowded with people which is not too 
often the case. Everybody enjoyed the 
wonderful choir-singing of these young 
girls, and we all would have liked to 
have this performance extended. 

The spiritual songs and the folk- 
songs as well were performed wonder- 
fully by the girls. I must say that I 
admired the well-trained singing and 
the really musical interpretation of the 
hymns and songs, all of them sung by 

Mr. Peterson did an excellent work in 
conducting the choir; by addressing 
humorously some words of introduc- 
tion and explanation to the audience, 
he knew how to get in contact with 
them immediately. 

We felt much impressed by the 
gentle and modest behaviour of the 

young ladies. We had the pleasure to 
have two of them in our new house 
overnight, and in the same evening 
Br. and Mrs. Peterson as our guests. 

To sum up; this concert was a real 
success and no doubt caused a closer 
contact between our people and the 
American people ... So we look for- 
ward to a "come back" in the years 
to come. 


"Unless the people of England, Hol- 
land, Germany and Switzerland have 
gone suddenly deaf and blind, they 
cannot help being impressed with the 
beauty and the manners and the sing- 
ing of the Salem girls. We have always 
been. And we are sure that they will 
be warmly welcomed — the more so for 
the contrast they are bound to make 
against the usual picture of the push- 
ing, loud-mouthed American tourist in 

This is one group of Yankees, we 
are confident, that nobody is going to 
ask to 'go home.' " 

by the REV. CLARK A. THOMPSON, College Chaplain 

Weary with travel and filled with memories, the Salem College Choral 
Ensemble returned to the States after a truly rewarding three-week tour of 
Europe, the museums and galleries, the shops and market places, the ever- 
changing scenery — all were a true feast for the eyes and joy to the heart. Travel- 
ing with our beloved Dutch guide, we saw and heard more than a lifetime can 
absorb. Every where we went, the girls erased the average view of the American 
tourist with the beauty of their "Sound of Music" and their open friendliness. 
The sincerity of their interest and their willingness to try it the European way 
made many good friends for the U.S.A. and Salem College. 

We told the concert audiences we had come to sing for them for two 
reasons: first, because we believed that music is an international language men 
can understand. Everywhere we found this to be a living truth. On the Rhine 
steaner as the girls sang and swapped songs with the German Y.M.C.A. campers 
and counselors, we sensed the oneness of all peoples in the language of music. 
The second reason we gave was that song is a means of praise to God which we 
share around the world. In the faces of more than 1200 Moravians and friends 
to whom the Ensemble sang we saw the oneness we feel. At Konigsfeld as we 
sang together in English and German, we sensed the smallness of the world in 
which we live and the more-than-human bonds that unite men. 

There is much to tell and much to remember, but in these first days back 
home we remember most clearly the faces and voices of many friends throughout 
England, The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and France. For we discovered 
for ourselves that no span of distance or confusion of language, or variety of 
custom can separate people who seek to walk with "One Hand, One Heart. " 

At jar right is the Rev. Clark A. Thompson, writer of the comment above. Standing next to him, are Mr. and Mrs. Peter- 
son. In front of Mr. Peterson, director of the Chorale Ensemble, are Mrs. Hodges with Miss Alice Litwinchuk. principal 
of Salem Academy and chaperone for the Ensemble's tour.

Christmas cookies are being ordered, ad- 
dress lists revised, parties for new and 
returning students hosted, and in foirteen 
places over North Carolina this Fall Salem 
girls are gathering over lunch or tea. Of 
these things we will hear in the Winter 
BULLETIN. But, from the busy begin- 
nings of a new year, we take one quick 
look back on Salem Clubs 1963-1964. 

Alamance County 

Catherine Biles Raper, President of the 
Alamance County (Burlington) Clnb, re- 
ported, "We initiated the successful sale 
of 150 pounds of Moravian Chtistmas 
Cookies last fall. We could have sold more 
but were unable to get them. Hope to 
double the amount this fall. Our profit 
is seeded away as a "nest egg" for pur- 
chasing cookies this Christmas. We hope, 
thus, to send a gift this year to Salem 
from our small but interested .Salem Club." 


Carolyn Reid Turner described the four 
meetings of the Charlotte Club: A Sep- 
tember coke party in her home for re- 
turning students; an October meeting with 
William Kinney presenting with slides the 
Experiment in International Living fea- 
tured last year in BULLETIN articles by 
Ted Wolff Wilson in the Spting issue and 
Judy Summerell in the Winter issue; a 
party for prospective students in Tanuary 
at the home of Susan Johnson Hardage; 
and a tea honoring Lelia Graham Marsh 
in Mary Harriett Davis Davidson's home 
with seventy attending. 

Their sales of Moravian Christmas 
Cookies supports a scholarship for a Char- 
lotte girl. 


The Concord Club made a gift to Salem 
honoring the memory of C. D. Sides, the 
h"sband of their president, Rosa Caldwell 
Sides. Mr. Sides lost his life in a tragic 
fire which destroyed their home last win- 
ter. To Rosa we express the interest and 
concern of her many Salem friends; to 
the Concord Club our appreciation for 
their appropriate memorial. 

Durham-Chapel Hill 

Edna Wilkerson McCoUum wrote, "Our 
club, for the second year, took as its proj- 
ect the sale of Moravian Cookies. We more 
than doubled our sales this year and were 
very pleased with the reception the cook- 
ies received in this area." They had 
planned their year over in the 
Fall. Nancy H"ghes, their scholarship 
holder, showed the club slides of Salem 
in raid-winter. Salem student government 
president, Tish Johnston, spoke at the 
Spring meeitng. 


Suejette Davidson Brown reported that 
500 pounds of "well-advertised" cookies 
were sold all over Greensboro with "al- 
most every member helping." One result 
of this activity was a S.300 gift to Salem. 
They also found time for a luncheon in 
October, a party for prospective students in 
March, and a springtime open house. 

Acting President, Venetia Cox, and Sec- 

retary-Treasurer Mary Parker Edwards 
sent the Club's gift to Salem, SlOO for 
their scholarship fund, and the report that 
they sell stars as well as cookies. "Also, 
around Thanksgiving we entertain pros- 
pective students at tea." 


Virginia Lee Cowper hosted a large 
group of Salem alumnae at a spring tea in 
her home. These days Kinston takes par- 
ticular pleasure in their six Salem fresh- 


Dot Smothers Richardson reported that 
ReidsviUe alumnae have also become cookie 
sellers. From their proceeds they sent a 
fine gift to Salem and set aside a reserve 
for this year. We wish this new club 
much enjoyment in their activities to- 


The Wilson Club hosted 80 alumnae at 
the largest North Carolina area meeting 
ever held. The same month 60 were pres- 
ent at a tea for prospective students, 
where slides of Salem's campus and ac- 
tivities were shown. President Ann Bon- 
durant Young brought their $100 gift 
to Salem on Alumnae Day. 

Rocky Mount 

Jean Griffin Fleming told of a Fall 
tea given by the Rocky Mount Club and 
Marion Hines Robbins honoring their own 
Maggie May Jones, Salem Alumnae Asso- 
ciation President. Like most Salem groups 
they managed, on the side, to do a little 
planning for their scholarship fund and 
future gatherings. 


Doris McMillan Elder's report showed 
that on a Fall night Winston-Salem girls 
heard Ed Shewmake talk on "Pop Art". 
Over a morning coffee James Gray spoke 
of Old Salem's plans. Miss Marsh spun 
Salem tales at Spring luncheon. In ad- 
dition, to their scholarship gift for a For- 
syth girl they contributed S200 to the 
Chorale Ensemble for the European trip. 

Lehigh 'Valley, Bethlehem, Pa. 

Arnice Topp Fulton wrote that at a 
Fall meeting in Elizabeth Bahnson's home 
Lehigh 'Valley Alumnae heard about the 
Virgin Islands. Nancy Ramseur Allen 
talked of Jamaica during their Spring gath- 
ering. As a memorial to Julia Crawford 
Steckel, former Vice President of the club, 
a gift was made to the Alumnae Fund. 

Tidewater, Virginia 

The scattered Salem girls in the Tide- 
water cities of Virginia were unable to 
get together last year, Mary Lou Lang- 
horne wrote. They nevertheless sold some 
cookies and made a gift to the college for 
scholarship purposes. 

And that was some of what happened 
last year among alumnae in clubs, both 
the organized and the informal in na- 
ture. One of the results easiest to measure 
is the 1963-1964 combined gift to Salem 
from a dozen clubs which totals some- 
thing over SI 700. Not as easy to measure 
are the reasons surrounding a sharp in- 
crease in attendance and in the number of 
meetings, social hours, luncheons and the 
like. Finally, beyond the possibility of 


measurement is the enjoyment of friend- 
ship maintained or renewed among Salem 

To all last year's cookie sellers, tea 
drinkers, student coke party hostesses, and 
Salem chit-chatters go the College's very 
good wishes for an enjoyably successful 
year of service for Salem. To you who 
somehow missed out last year, remember 
— when the Postman next leaves a Salem 
invitation — the opportunities for you and 
Salem that invitation carries. 



Candle Tea 

2:00-9:00 P. M. 


of beeswax candles 

— Coffee and sugar cake served in the 
restored basement kitchen 

— The intricately crafted scale model 
of Sale^n and the College under 

— The Piitz of the Nativity and the 
reading of the Christmas story 

As a part of the Tea this year, 
visitors will have the opportunity of

House and hearing the Tannenburg 
Organ played. Old Salem guides will 
offer optional tours of the first floor 
and first basement craft shops where 
attendants will explain machines and 
articles on exhibit there. 

A donation of 50c for adults and 
25c for children is asked by the Can- 
dle Tea. The joint tour of the craft 
shops is offered by Old Salem, for 
these dates, at special rates of 50c 
for adults and 15c for students. 

Many Salem alumnae will be ac- 
tively engaged in all phases of this 
traditional event. In addition, alumnae 
will conduct a tour for Salem's 145 
Freshmen on December 1st. 

At Fall meetings alumnae in many 
places expressed a desire to attend the 
Tea. For them and for you this in- 
formation is included here, along with 
the invitation to make the Alumnae 
House your stopping place while in 

Introducing . . . 



New Alumnae Secretary 

By the time this issue of the Alumnae Bulletin reaches your mail box, the new 
Director of Alumnae Affairs at Salem will have attended several club, regional, sec- 
tional and area alumnae meetings and will have sat in on numerous Association com- 
mittee sessions. She will have met many of you personally, written to others of you, 
and talked clearly and distinctly to still others on the telephone. 

Since taking office July 1, after a year of apprenticeship under the retired Lelia 
Graham Marsh, Edith Tesch Vaughn, '54, has also seen to the change of some 400 ad- 
dresses in the alumnae files (changes average 100 a month). She has edited all copy 
other than this statement for this issue of the Bulletin, booked many reservations for 
use of the guest rooms in the Alumnae House, addressed the Faculty, and otherwise been 
of service to the 5,850 identified members of the Association. 

Edith Vaughn is well equipped for her responsibilities. She speaks well, she writes 
well, she organizes well, she cooperates well, she wears well. She is a 1954 cum laude 
graduate of Salem with a major in sociology-economics. She was active in several campus 
organizations as a student: Student Government, Choral Ensemble, I.R.S., Y.W.C.A., 
etc. She spent five years in Alaska in the mission work of the Moravian Church. She 
has done secretarial and other work in Chapel Hill. 

Mrs. Vaughn came to the Alumnae Office in the Spring of 1963 during an illness 
of Miss Marsh and carried on the business of the office during Miss Marsh's subsequent 
hospitalization. She continued on the job as an assistant last year and was moved up to 
her present position on July 1. Her office telephone number is 724-4231.

A scholarship fund, initiated by Elizabeth "Winget 
Mauney '41, is growing at Salem. Begun in 1962, it pro- 
vides alumnae with a distinctive means of honoring their 
daughters, granddaughters, and nieces at birth, on a birth- 
day or other special occasion. In addition, it is a means of 
building a scholarship fund which will be used by some 
of these "Salem daughters" in future years, if they should 
choose Salem and be chosen by Salem. 

While a gift registering a child in no way obligates 
either the child or Salem, it can make each aware of the 
other in a special way. It can record the child's name in 
a large leather book in The Alumna House. It can help 
meet the ever-increasing demands upon scholarship funds 
in the future. 

Will you register your "future Salemite" by sending a 
gift (in any amount you wish) and the information blank 
provided here.'' Checks should be made to the Future 
Salem Daughters Scholarship and sent to The Alumnae 
House, Salem College. 


At least 148 years old but turned out for the '64-'65 
season in fresh white trim and glistening dark green 
shutters to accent her weathered brick, your ALUMNAE 
HOUSE opens its doors with a special invitation for you 
to make use of the facilities provided here. 

The office is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday 
through Friday ready to offer — or acquire — any infor- 
mation possible. Through the same hours the living room 
can be the nicest sort of resting place when visiting the 

The upstairs bedrooms offer overnight accommoda- 
tions in the heart of the campus and carry the alumnae 
seal of approval as "comfortable and charming." Rates are 
S5.00 for single accommodation and $7.00 for double ac- 
commodation, per night. For information and reservations

To Look Ahead 

Address at Opening Convocation 


Sept. 17, 1964 
Dr. Gramley 

Ten years ago, Salem opened formally on Sept. 24 
and closed on May 30. 

This year Salem opened a week earlier and will close 
a week later. 

This may or may not be symbolic of the greater de- 
mands now being made upon Salem's students by the 
Faculty. However, I like to think that it is. And I like to 
think that Salem's students are better prepared than ever 
before to meet the academic demands of today and, there- 
fore, the requirements of the future. 
* * * 

It is my intention here to look ahead rather than to 
look back — to look ahead to the next 12 months, of course, 
but, more importantly, to look to the years stretching be- 

Almost imbeknownst to us, our society has entered 
what might be called the third great revolution of history 
and of civilization. I refer to the development of those 
technological devices which are in the process of produ- 
cing time. If you dislike the idea of the word "producing" 
in connection with time, substitute the word "saving" or 
the word "conserving," or even the word "accumulating." 

At any event, through automation of industrial op- 
erations and through the development and use of electronic 
computers in mathematical and clerical operations, we 
are displacing labor, eliminating jobs in the face of a 
growing population, and otherwise preparing the economy 
to present us with substantial blocks of so-called spare or 
leisure time. 

Donald Michael says that "automation is being used 
to make and roll steel, mine coal, manufacture engine 
blocks, weave cloth, sort and grade everything from oranges 
to bank checks . . . compute the best combination of 
crops and livestock for given farm conditions; design 
and "fly" rockets and airplanes before they are built . . . 
Computers have also been programmed to write mediocre 
TV dramas (by manipulating segments of the plot), write 
music, translate tolerably if not perfectly from one lan- 
guage to another." 

A manufacturer of automated equipment has esti- 
mated that 40,000 jobs are being eliminated in produc- 
tion industry each week. This doesn't necessarily mean 
that 40,000 people are being fired each week, for industry, 
by and large, is maintaining its work force. It just simply 
is not hiring more people despite increased population. 

Arnold Toynbee, the eminent historian, recently ar- 
ticulated America's dilemma in this observation: "The 
U. S. faces acutely the problem of finding a compromise 
between two essentially American things — extreme indi- 
vidualism and extreme mechanization. America's future 
will depend largely on how she reconciles these contra- 
dictory tendencies." 

In a real sense, the opening lines of Dickens' "Tale 
of Two Cities," illustrates the paradoxical age in which 
we live. Do you remember Dickens' characterization of 
the time of the French Revolution? Here it is: 

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; 
it was the age of wisdom; it was the age of foolishness; 
it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; 
it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness; 
it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair." 

Dickens could have been writing about the present 
era in more ways than one. He could have been writing 
about the current political scene, the international scene, 
the social scene, the racial scene, the moral scene, and 
certainly the economic scene, which finds Americans earn- 
ing more and spending more than at any time in history, 
yet failing to provide employment for approximately 5% 
of our employable adult population. 

The present century has been a fascinating period in 
this country. When I was a small boy, some industries 
still required a 60-hour week. One of the arguments for 
it was that anything less than a 12 -hour day would only 
lead to drunkenness. 

But by about 1940, we had reduced the industrial 
work week by about one-third, or from 60 hours to 40 
hours. If we could reduce the work time one-third in a 
40-year period without automation and computers, it 
seems likely that we can reduce it still further in the last 


40 years of the century with these devices available and 
being utilized at an increasing tempo. 

In fact, the professional prophets in this field are 
now predicting that in the next 15 to 20 years, when some 
of you will have just sent your youngest child off to school, 
the work week in America will be reduced by at least 

Your husbands can tell you that there is less need 
than ever today for unskilled labor in manufacturing 
plants. Even the construction industry uses relatively few. 
There are still some unskilled laborers working on our 
Fine Arts building and our new dormitory, but only to 
bring materials to the skilled workmen. With all the dirt 
that has been moved to or shifted about at the sites of 
these two buildings, I have looked in vain for a shovel. 

John Diebold, in an article in McCaU's Magazine a 
while back, predicted that within the next generation the 
work of 60 million Americans is "practically certain to 
be obsolete." The title of the article, by the way, was: 
"When will your Husband Be Obsolete-'" 

Clerical and middle management jobs are also being 
eliminated. Latest figure I saw indicates that even in the 
fast-growing insurance industry, the rate of increased 
employment has dropped from 23'!^ to 8% in successive 
5-year periods ending in 1963, and all because of 

This is so because computers now operate at the 
speed of a billionth of a second per step. On the drawing 
boards is a computer which is expected to perform one 
step each pica second. And a pica second, it is explained, 
has the same relation to a billionth of a second that a 
second, as we know it, has to 30 years. 

The Alumni bulletin of the University of Virginia 
reports this week that a digital computer, installed there 
this summer at a cost of Si million, can add 170,000 11- 
digit numbers in one second, and that it can draw graphs, 
charts and diagrams and type a page of results in 3 

It is true, of course, that computers make errors 
when erring humans give them inaccurate information. 
The newspapers some months ago carried a story about 
a man who received a $2 million refund check from the 
Internal Revenue Service. There was the instance, too, 
in which 3,000 copies of a particular magazine were de- 
livered to a home in the morning mail. 

This type of mistake leads some observers to the 
belief that considerable labor may be required in the 
years ahead to correct the errors made by computers. 

But it is increasingly clear that the machinery and 
equipment being devised by man are actually producing 
time as well as goods and services. Automation of the 
steel-manufacturing processes has resulted already not only 
in lower production costs but in Union contracts provid- 
ing many workers with annual vacations of 3 weeks, plus 
a 13-week sabbatical leave with pay every five years. 

Prediction is that if the labor required by our econ- 
omy is to be equitably spread so that there will not be 
great segments of unemployment, almost everyone in 
production employment will have periodic leaves of ab- 
sence in the years ahead. 


A sudden end of the cold war, or even a gradual but 
consistent tapering off of it, could hasten the day when 
increased leisure time would be available. In this situation, 
political action would probably force a shortened work 
week. Inability to solve what is now called hard-core un- 
employment might bring the same political action. 

Some observers, including some economists, do not 
agree that automation and computers, which can be iden- 
tified under the general term cybernetics, will serve to 
reduce the work load in America. They see a continuously 
expanding economy and increasing employment. But the 
prevailing opinion seems to me to be that America's work 
will be done in a way that will produce increased leisure 
time before your children or grandchildren are in college. 

# * * 

The point of all this is to raise in your minds and 
imagination some serious consideration as to how you 
would use 25% or 50% more free or leisure time than 
you now have. You might even ask yourself how you would 
use it were it available to you tomorrow. I have been ask- 
ing myself the same question and I confess that I am 
uncertain despite the romancing in which I engage oc- 
casionally when the problems pyramid themselves and 
the demands upon my time seem to overlap endlessly. 

Built into our outlook and into our Judo-Christian 
ethic is a high regard for and a reliance upon work. We 
treat free time as a conditioned joy. We view idleness as 
a sin and unemployment as a tragedy. Many women, in 
particular, have feelings of guilt once the demands upon 
their time and energy are lightened as the last son or 
daughter leaves home. 

The challenge to you as an individual is obvious. You 

have had a good start by inheritance, intellectually and 

otherwise, and by your educational success to date. But 

you need to continue to develop the interest and self-

To Be Fulfilled 


"The American housewife is a mindless dreary little 
household drudge." 

"We have equality on paper, but we have not as- 
sumed equality. We are not truly free and equal if the 
only worlds we feel free to move in are the kitchen and 
the bedroom. We are not really free if we fear to use the 
rights that were won for us ... as long as we must 
make a choice between marriage and parenthood and the 
full growth and use of whatever unique ability we have." 

"We wake up at 29 or 39 with what is supposed to 
be a woman's sole fulfillment — that husband, those chil- 
dren and that house — with no purpose in life. This 
causes us to hold on to the children too long, to demand 
too much of our husbands." 

"There would be no great masculine backlash . . . 
I think men would find it a welcome relief to be free of 
the burden of having women live too much through 

"Women should stop seconding nominations and 
keeping the minutes and start to run for office. It might 
be a joke now for a woman to run for president, but if 
enough run for senator now it might not be a joke some- 

"Women are either facing, living through, or evad- 
ing an identity crises. ( Feminine mystique ) implies no 
identity of their own ( for women ) . . . they're simply 
somebody's wife or somebody's mother. In a lifespan of 
probably 100 years, the years in which you can define 
yourself as mother are relatively few." 

"Mores of the Feminine Mystique are stronger in 
the South and they are binding because women have few 
feminine images other than their mothers to guide them, 
and most of our mothers were housewives." 

* * * 

In view of that last statement, it was especially ap- 
propriate that Betty Friedan should come to Salem. She 
is exploring the "mores of the Feminine Mystique" as it 
prevents women from achieving "fuUfiUment" in the 
sixties. If these mores are stronger in the South, it was 
right and proper for her to come and see. To come to 
Salem was additionally a good idea, for Salem has been 
closely associated with Southern women for longer than 
most any American institution. 

In the early- 19th-century atmosphere of the Alumnae 
House, while sipping tea, eating Moravian cookies and 
sugar cake, Mrs. Friedan pursued the subjects of profes- 
sions, homemaking, salaries and attitudes with a .group of 
Winston-Salem career women who are very much a con- 
tributing part of the 20th century. The questions she 
posed for comment were many, and her pencil moved 
quickly jotting down bits of information to become a 
part of the informal research she is conducting in prep- 
aration for her next book. 

Word of the Alumnae House gathering spread 
among students passing on the way to and from class. 

They asked permission to listen in on the dialogue and 
quietly slipped into corners of the room. Soon the corners 
were filled and the entire floor "carpeted" with girls. They 
seemed especially interested in the matters of balancing 
professional careers with home, husband, and children 
(which all felt to be important to their "fulfillment"). To 
the comments of women who are doing this and liking 
it, to the expressions of those who have broken their 
careers at some point, and to the opinions of those who 
have rejected careers outside the home, these students give 
the kind of attention any professor might covet. 

Later at coffee and finally in a lengthy lecture to a 
full house, Salem girls had the opportunity to hear and 
to question Mrs. Friedan on her theory of what consti- 


tutes "fulfillment" for women in this day. All that was 
discussed cannot be recorded here. Yet, in selecting and 
excerpting statements, we take the chance of giving a 
slanted view of what went on in discussions around cam- 
pus. It is our purpose here, however, to let you listen in 
from the back row of two class sessions in the hope that 
on leaving class you will head for the library and the 
parallel reading suggested. 

We trudge to the second floor of Main Hall, the light 
green education room. Here, if you are bored with the 
class session, you can wile away the time gazing into the 
Square. You are not likely to become bored today, how- 

Mrs. Lucia Karnes and Mr. James Bray have dis- 
cussed rhe Friedan lecture with their respective classes. 
Since their views of the author and her work differ 
significantly, they have been asked to trade lecterns so 
each class may hear the other side of the argument. And 
this is the day. 

Mrs. Karnes is assistant professor of education, hold- 
ing a B.S. degree from Georgia State College for Women, 
and an M.A. degree from Emory University. She taught 
at Salem from 1949-1950 and again in the 1953-54 
academic year. Her career has been interrupted by the 
arrival of Eleanor, Campbell, Timothy and "Chipper." 
She re-entered her chosen profession in 1959. Born, 
reared and educated south of the Mason-Dixon, she 
brought to this discussion a thoroughly satisfactory ac- 
quaintance with the mores of the Feminine Mystique in 
the South. 

Addressing Mr. Bray's class, Mrs. Karnes went im- 
mediately to several important things to keep in mind: 
"Betty Friedan is a social psychologist and has studied 
with some outstanding psychologists; my purpose is to 
elaborate, not interpret, Mrs. Friedan's thesis." 

She next made two general comments. ( I ) Mrs. 
Friedan agrees wiih psychologists who say that personali- 
ties develop according to the roles we play and identifica- 
tions we inake before we come to maturity. Our identifi- 
cation with roles of the early 20th century poses real 
problems in achieving "fulfillment" in the present age. 

( 2 ) Betty Friedan is not speaking as a discontented house- 
wife or tired mother of three, but as a social psychologist. 

Maslow's "five steps to maturity" was the next sub- 
ject as Mrs. Karnes outlined the major preoccupations of 
the human at various periods of life. We move from con- 
cern for ( 1 ) physical needs, to concern for ( 2 ) safety in 
a limited world, to an awareness of (3) lore from others, 
to a desire for ( 4 ) esteem frovi others, and finally to the 
need for a sense of ( 5 ) self -achievement. 

It is Betty Friedan's opinion that many women are 
prevented from moving to this last stage of maturity by 
the pressures of society which rule off many areas of ac- 
tivity as not being "feminine." By heeding these pres- 
sures, women fail to find "fulfillment" or self-actualiza- 
tion or self-achievement which is what we aim toward 
all through life. 

Mrs. Karnes stressed the point tha: Betty Friedan is 
writing only to the 50% of females who have intelligence 
quotients of 100 or above; that she is speaking of achieve- 
ment, not as a mother or wife, bur as her self, as the 
unique human she is. 

From experience, Mrs. Karnes spoke of life as a pie 
that is sliced and used up each day. The slice needed by 
the children rapidly grows smaller with passing time. What 
happens to all the left over pie? 

To the quick insistance by the students that making

To Be Exceptional 



Kate Wurreschke 

The discussion on the foregoing pages is current 
and topical but it is not new to Salem girls. 

On January 13, 1965, Miss Kate Wurreschke, Class 
of 1896, died at the age of 85. To her sister, Naomi 
Wurreschke Walker 'OS and to all "Miss Kate's" numerous 
friends, we express sorrow in her long illness and her 
death. Yet, at the same time, we must be glad with them 
for the influence of her valuable life. 

The quote with which this Bulletin began is not from 
Betty Friedan's Fefninine Mystique or from any modern 
sociologist or psychologist. It is from Kate Wurreschke. In 
her day she would have loved a chance to speak to the 
points raised on Salem's campus by Dr. Gramley's speech 
and Betty Friedan's visit. And she would have been well- 
worth hearing. 

Read the quote again. And then read what the Win- 
ston-Salem Journal had to say about Miss Kate. 

* * * 

From the Journal 1-14-65: 

When she wrote in 1941 about this urge (with which 
women are possessed), she recalled stepping into situa- 
tions where women before had not tread. Her life was one 
of many pursuits. 

Miss Wurreschke was born in Salem to Ludwig 
Bernhard and Josephine Alector Wurreschke. Her father 
was a minister and professor at Salem Boys School and 
Salem Female Academy. Her mother taught at the academy. 

Miss Wurreschke graduated from Salem College in 

Her early life was spent as a secretary and court 
stenographer. She recalled that she was the first woman 
to work in a bank here, being employed by Col. W. A. 
Blair at People's National Bank. 

Miss Kate also worked during World War I as a 
clerk for the Southern Railway. Of this experience she 
once said, "No girl had ever been employed in a railway 
office in this city and this was quite a daring step. Before 
I left I had done just about every kind of railway station 
work, except trucking freight." 

She was the first woman to work for Col. J. L. Lud- 
low, an outstanding civil engineer and designer, and she 
was a secretary to Mrs. R. J. Reynolds at one time. 

She later worked for the law firm of Manly and 
Hendren as a stenographer and court reporter. She said 
her work with the lawyers took her to various courts 

where she met "all the great lawyers and Superior Court 
judges. When they went out of town to court in those 
days, in a horse-drawn conveyance, they usually would 
stay in the town where court was being held for a week. 

"We would sit around a big wood fire at night and 
listen to all the big men discuss the political issues of the 
day," she once recalled. 

"I learned to stir a cooking pot with one hand and 
type a law brief with the other," Miss Kate said about a 
break in her career that kept her at home and away from 
the office. 

When she joined the Winston-Salem police depart- 
ment in 1914, she was the first woman employed in the 
police department. She recalled, the police chief told her 
the job was one of "variety." She learned quickly that she 
was secretary to the police chief, but also had to search 
women prisoners, serve as jail matron and investigate 
juvenile and family disputes. 

City Manager John Gold who was police chief when 
Miss Kate retired in 1945, said, "I remember Miss Kate 
well. I remember her as a really fine person and a really 
capable person. She was a great disciplinarian and very 
proud of her rating as lieutenant. 

"She had a great influence in the building of the 
police department during those years she was active in it. 
She was the juvenile officer and handled the women 

W. R. Burke, who was detective captain when Miss 
Kate retired, said, "I worked with her for 20-some years. 
When she started she did practically all the record work. 
She was secretary to Chief ( A.E. ) Thomas for a long 
while and she did all the correspondence and such records 
as we had until we started the records division. 

"Miss Kate was really a fireball in her day. She was 
a whiz-banger. She didn't always agree with us and we 
didn't always agree with her, but we got along fine. She 
was really efficient in her day. 

"She was a kind of matron and looked after the 
women prisoners — she took a great deal of interest in 

The Rev. Clayton Persons, pastor of Trinity Moravian 
Church, recalled that "she was a dedicated person, very 
kind to people, thoughtful of them and concerned for 
them. Her interest was with young people just as well as 
older people. She was an exceptional woman in her day,"

It may require a few more decades for us in America 
to re-orient our educational system from its present wide- 
spread concern with preparation for earning a livelihood 
to a new emphasis upon preparation for living in the 
broadest sense. But this must be done. In our primarily 
liberal arts curriculum at Salem, our greatest concern is 
now in this direction. Our attitude and purpose will 
undoubtedly continue so. May I quote the college's state- 
ment of aim and purpose from the catalog. 

"The enrichment of the individual student for use- 
ful life, intellectually, vocationally, culturally, morally, 
physically and spiritually, is the aim of Salem College. 
Salem College believes knowledge without direction is a 
counterfeit, and so it endeavors to provide Christian 
values. It believes higher education should not only equip 
people to help improve the society of which they are a 
part, but that it must also prepare them for their own 
inevitable solitude." 

When work starts slipping from its throne in the 
years of your life, and leisure becomes increasingly a prob- 
lem, there will still be much to hold your interest and 
challenge your concern. Included will be such things as 
love and truth and beauty, the Ten Commandments and 
the Sermon on the Mount, the underprivileged and the 
drop-outs, the slum areas of our cities and the Johnnies 
who can't read, the endless frontiers of science and the 
depletion of the soil in many countries of the world, home 
and family and the desirability of making domestic life 
both a pleasant retreat and a happy experience. 

If you do not somehow learn to adjust to the in- 
creasing leisure which you and your husband will have in 
time, America may not be able to produce enough clergy- 
men, psychiatrists, social workers, doctors, nurses and pro- 
fessional counselors to patch up the damaged lives that 
will abound. By your handling of your own individual 
preparation for tomorrow's world, you can help assure 
that hope, rather than therapy, will dominate society 20 
years from now and 30 years and 50 years.

May I summarize, within the focus of present pre- 
dictions for the days of your life, all that I have been 
trying to say by adapting to your situation the earlier 
quotation from "The Tale of Two Cities"? Here it is: 

This is the age of wisdom, if you grasp the oppor- 
tunity to seek wisdom, this the age of foolishness, if you 
chase instead the sideshows of life. 

This is the epoch of belief, if you hold fast to the 
values that count; this is the epoch of incredulity, if you 
succumb to every doubt. 

This is the season of light, if you look unafraid to 
the skies; this is the season of darkness, if you close 
your eyes. 

This is the spring of hope, if you look for the posi- 
tive in life; this is the winter of despair, if you surrender 
to every discouragement and withdraw from the chal- 
lenge of developing and enriching your mind and heart 
and personality. 


( Continued from page 5 ) 
a home can be fulfilling, Mrs. Karnes agreed, "You can 
create an inspirational poem while folding eighteen dozen 
diapers, but when the diapers are no more, will you con- 
tinue your creative writing as more than a way to get 
through the drudgery? 'Will you let it become something 
to which you devote your self? Our fears are that you may 
be planning to get married — period; that you may wish to 
use your education only as a time filler between college 
and marriage; or that you may cut yourself off short by 
only 'keeping busy' with volunteer good works when, 
in time, these should lead you to a self-fulfilling career." 

She urged the girls to avoid at all costs the pitfalls 
of devoting their energies to trying to change their 
husbands or living their children's lives. "When you live 
through your husband, you may get the results back 
disastrously. There's a fine old Southern saying — that 
probably comes from Massachusetts — 'The lazy mother 
has good children'." 

Mrs. Karnes urged the girls to prepare for a pro- 
fession, to expect its interruption, and then to deal with 
home and career creatively, bringing them into a balance 
that will result in enrichment for self and family. She 
spoke of a "pattern of interests" for which they should 
look, a "tempo individually yours" which can lead to a 
fulfilling profession for which they may not consciously 
have prepared. 

Then there were questions from the students. 

Question: Mrs. Friedan says, "We have equality on 
paper, but we have not assumed equality." What about 
the situations where we not only assume equality in a 
profession but also ask for special privileges — in hours, 
for instance, or in altering other requirements? 

Mrs. Karnes acknowledged that it is necessary to ask 
for privileges, citing graduate study requirements. Bal- 
ancing home and academic work may mean four years of 
study where less are allowed, but permission should be 
sought. It should be forthcoming, too, because of the 
need for women in professions. "Don't be deterred by 
seemingly rigid standards. Don't be afraid to ask for the 
privilege of working out an arrangement that will permit 
you to get started on what you are planning." 

Question: Mr. Bray said, 'A neurotic housewife will 
be neurotic in a career." Do you agree? 

"We have found work therapy most effective in 
treating emotional disorders. Work is good therapy." She 
stressed the fact that much of successful treatment is 
based on occupational therapy. 

Question: "Can't we just have hobbies at home?" 

Mrs. Karnes warned against confusing busy work 
with creative work. Hobbies do not contribute to the 
community unless the "product" is sold or given away. 
When the product of the hobby can stand the test of 
competition or comparison, it becomes much more than 
a hobby; it becomes a source of fulfillment. A hobby 
quietly carried on "in a closet" does not provide a means 
to self-actualization in the community. It is not manda- 
tory that you "get a job in the world to achieve fulfill- 
ment." Mrs. Friedan, herself, works at home, but the 
result of her work gets into the world and affects it. 

As the bell rang, Mrs. Karnes concluded the dis- 
cussion of the hour this way: "When you are satisfied 
with your self, you will not drain others to fill your self. 
If you like your self, you treat yourself and others with 
respect. When you are comfortable with your self, you 
have the best thing you can give your home." 

* * * 

One class leaves and another arrives. This time it is 
Mrs. Karnes' class coming to hear Mr. Bray's comments 
on Betty Friedan's visit, book, and theories. Mr. Bray, as- 
sistant professor of education, holds degrees from the 
College of William and Mary. A Virginian, he is satis- 
factorily Southern in rearing to have an understanding 
of the mores of the Feminine Mystique in these parts. He 
heads a family of two sons and a wife ( who is beginning 
to think of employment now that David and Bryan are 
older ). 

Mr. Bray acknowledged at the outset that he might 
be looked upon as representing the masculine point of 
view, but to regard him as the "enemy" would be facetious. 
He professed he had no bone to pick with Mrs. Friedan; 
that, in fact, he agreed with most tenants of her "gospel." 
Expressing some doubt of her qualifications, he did dis- 
agree with the book jacket's description of her work as 
"depth psychology." He also hesitated to accept the re- 
sults of her "research" as a definitive analysis of American 
women since it is based on the study of so few women. 

Mr. Bray made it plain he would not attempt to 
speak as a "man" or a "Southerner," but only as himself — 
and certainly not as an "expert." "I am no expert on 
women. Seven years at Salem have proved this over and 
over and over." 

"Furthermore, speaking on this subject in this room 
is uncomfortably like my telling Texans how to solve the 
Mexican problem," said the Virginian. Then, beginning 
at the end, Mr. Bray commented on the final chapter of 
Betty Friedan's book. Here she proposes some ways for 
achieving "fulfillment." Said Mr. Bray, "I do disagree 
with her when she implies that a very complicated matter 
can be solved by steps 1, 2, 3, 4". 

Author Friedan stresses the impact of the television 
presentation of men and women ( in situation comedies, 
medical dramas and commercials ) . Mr. Bray observed, "If 
women really are strongly influenced by the Kildares and 
Caseys, the TV wives, and the insistence you must have 
this and this, why worry about their 'fulfillment.' They 
may be too stupid for hope." 

Mr. Bray conceded that society has different rules for 
women. "You have just finished eighteen years of shelter- 
ing parental authority that was much more binding for 
you than for your brothers. You live in a society that 
does not allow you to get out and hitchhike around the 
country. Our culture says chastity is wonderful but winks 
at a boy and allows him to sow a few oats. This different 
set of rules for women reaches into all areas of life. In 
the courts women, not men, are awarded alimony. A 
housewife can get out of jury duty." 

"And you don't really hate the rules. You are much 
harsher with yourself than your parents — or we — are. If 
tomorrow we dropped all the rules, not your parents or 
the faculty would be first and loudest to complain — but 

"You don't need more freedom; you need to use 
what you already have. The enemy of woman and her 
rights is woman. Women hai'e freedom of choice, but they 
must often sacrifice things they consider too valuable to 
lay aside." 

Mr. Bray commented that the failure to find "fulfill- 
ment" in marriage and home may stem primarily from 
the lack of maturity of marriage partners. "When two 
adults meet and two adults marry, there can be fulfill- 
ment." Trouble comes when she looks for a "father" to 
pay the bills and keep her as she likes, and he for a 
"mother" to pamper and build his ego. "Adults expect 
disappointments; children can't deal with them. 'Two 
adults can undertake the good and bad together." 

"I have oversimplified all down the line — with just 
enough truth to make it stand." 

Just before turning the discussion over to the girls, 
Mr. Bray observed that the arts have long been an open 
community. "But where are the really great women paint- 
ers, authors, musicians, and the like? Perhaps woman has 
less desire to be creative. She knows from early age that 
she can participate in earth's ultimate creation." May it 
be that woman is basically constituted so differently that 
she can never completely escape a Feminine Mystique? 

The comments of the students approached the sub- 
ject from angles too numerous to record. The criss-cross 
of viewpoints produced confused discussion lines, but it 
established firmly the fact that everyone present felt her- 
self to have a personal stake and an immediate concern 
in these matters of "freedom" and "fulfillment." There 
was some general agreement that more doors stood wide 
open to them than they would ever enter; that the burden 
of proof in any argument over the plight of women rests, 
not with society — or even Betty Friedan — but with the 
individual woman. 

Picking up some of the scattered strands of the dis- 
cussion, Mr. Bray said, "The future holds for you what 
you wish it to hold. You are restricted by being a woman 
only if you think you are restricted. You are restricted as 
a student only where you set the limits, for at Salem we 
are not educating women, but individuals. 

"Yet you are basically feminine. I see nothing wrong 
with that. But sometimes I think you do. Don't ever be 
apologetic for being a woman; no apology is necessary. 
The fulfillment of being a woman is to be one." 

It was incidentally, observed in both class sessions — 
not once but repeatedly — that the role of homemaker may 
provide the best possible opportunity to continue the 
search for liberal truth. On the chance that this was not 
simply wishful thinking, the following parallel reading 
list is offered.

On Campus 

By way of a progress report, we in- 
clude pictures of the two buildings rising 
on campus. The new dormitory for 100 
students presents a suitably modest ap- 
pearance as she joins her Church Street 
neighbors. A more revealing view ap- 
pears on the back cover. 

It appears that we will be the first to 
use the Fine Arts Center — on June 5 th, 
Alumnae Day. Plan now to be part of 
that significant event in Salem's life. The 
Spring BULLETIN will "introduce" this 
impressive building and will outline 
plans for Alumnae Day.

Among Alumnae 


Throughout the Fall small groups of Salem girls 
gathered in thirteen places across North Carolina. Inside 
the front cover of this Bulletin appear the names of those 
who were in charge of the meetings which began on Sep- 
tember 29th in Asheville, moved across the state to Wil- 
mington, and concluded in mid-state on October 30th at 
Chapel Hill, 

What does not appear on the inside front cover is a 
list of the many who assisted the District Chairmen and 
Area Directors in making arrangements for the afternoon 
tea and the dozen luncheons at which a total of 250 Salem 
girls gathered. Here in print we add to the thanks ex- 
pressed to them at their meetings. Though our expression 
suffers by being general and nameless it is no less genuine. 

In Asheville and Whiteville, Miss Edith Kirkland 
showed new slides of Salem and explained the procedures 
in admissions. She talked of the growing pressure to get 
into college as felt at Salem and as experienced by alumnae 
in referring prospective students. In this area of vital 
interest questions and answers sessions were not un- 
expectedly lively and valuable — valuable to Salem and, 
we hope, to alumnae representing their Alma Mater on 
the local scene. 

Gatherings in Morganton, Salisbury and High Point 
also saw pictures of Salem. Here, however, the emphasis 
was on the development of the campus as a whole. Ses- 
sions led by Mr. Jack White, assistant to the President 
and Business Manager of Salem, revealed present construc- 
tion news of the Fine Arts Center and new dorm with 
attention to what their completion and use means in the 
total life of Salem College. By pointing out smaller im- 
provements here and there all over campus he was able to 
show how each spot on campus is valued for what its best 
service may be at a given moment, and how constant 
evaluation of existing facilities has put almost every nook 
and cranny to its best use. 

Patsy Moser Sumner gathered Salem girls in Gas- 
tonia for some informal Salem chit-chat. They were es- 
pecially interested in hearing of activities in the Salem 
community: the opening of the Brother's House and the 
Candle Tea, in particular. 

In Wilmington at the home of Laura Howell Schorr 
twenty-four sipped tea and munched too many tempting 
snacks as they caught up on news of each other and Salem. 
In the warm and hospitable surroundings conversation was 
animated as reports on those who were not there were 
shared by those who were. 

U.N.C. professor. Dr. Mary Turner Lane '39, was the 
speaker at the luncheon in Chapel Hill. She came fresh 
from the shock of some newly presented figures on the 
number of young people headed for colleges in the all-too- 
immediate future. Predictions on needs for faculty and 


facilities to meet the college jam may have given her 
Salem sisters a sense of the same shock she felt. At least 
all present now have a new appreciation of the meaning 
behind the public service TV cartoon that goes, "Colleges 
are in deep . . . support the college of your choice." 

Dr. Gramley sat in a cozy room in Monroe and 
chatted about the current scene at Salem, on the campus, 
in the academic program, in matters of finance, in co- 
operative ventures among colleges, and much more. In 
his special way he managed to cover almost everything 
and do it in a way that made it linger. 

In New Bern, Smithfield, Greenville and Weldon, 
Edith Vaughn talked of ways in which alumnae have a 
daily, active influence in campus life. Through scholar- 
ships they have built and are building, through physical 
facilities they have supplied, through competitions and 
awards, a lecture series, a guest house — through these 
things and many more, Salem girls have a continuing effect 
upon their Alma Mater. 

Present at all these gatherings and instrumental in 
their success was Ted Wolff Wilson. Her office as First 
Vice President of the Salem Alumnae Association defines 
her duties in regard to the assistance she gives to Areas, 
Districts and local clubs. But the sparkling presence she 
brings to those duties definitely does not come out of 
any handbook of procedures. 

This report ends as it began — with a nod of deep 
appreciation, from Salem and from 250 Salem girls, to 
those who made this a very special Fall. Again, their 
names are inside the front cover. But our thanks are 
here for all to see. Thank you, girls. 

Winston-Salem Alumnae have been staging monthly 
SNACK SALES in the Day Student Center on campus. 
They seem to have hit the right spot — the hungry one — 
with students and faculty. All \unds go to the Winston- 
Salem Club Scholarship. 


Far From The Square 


Here follow accounts of three Salem students who have "becofne 
involved": one just setting out on her adventure with the Peace Corps: 
one half-way through two strategic years in her life; and one who has 
interrupted her formal education for a look ahead to ivhat may he the 
goal ivhich could shape her college preparation. 

Increasing attention is being given to the strong response among 
young people to the Peace Corps and other people-to-people programs 
sponsored by govern?nent, private, and church organizations. The "younger 
generation" is beginning to distinguish itself as "altruistic" and "willing 
to beco7ne involved." 

Mary Jackson '64 

There is every possibility that a yotmg person in your family or ac- 
quaintance may be one who will "become involved." Should you be get- 
ting familiar with these programs — and this prospect?

Winston-Salem Sentinel 

"Little Mary Sunshine" is going to Africa with the 
Peace Corps. 

Miss Mary Jackson of 2214 Elizabeth Avenue, the 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sam Jackson, leaves New York 
tonight bound for Tunisia as an English teacher. 

As a Salem College junior. Miss Jackson delighted 
local audiences with her portrayal of "Little Mary Sun- 
shine," in a college production of the musical spoof of 
the Jeanette MacDonald-Nelson Eddy era of operettas. 
There are those who thought her performance better than 
the role as played off-Broadway. 

Her lyric soprano voice has often been heard here in 
concert and in church, and it was assumed that hers would 
be a musical career. 

But, Miss Jackson explained yesterday, a Peace Corps 
volunteer must of all things "be flexible." 

Shes Flexible 
And she has shown flexibility throughout her college 
career. After a year at Converse College in Spartanburg, 
S. C, she transferred to Salem. 

Her major was changed from music to Latin, then to 
English before graduation in 1964 as a religion major. 

Of course, she was singing in the college Choral En- 
semble. And she went to one summer school for fun, "I 
thought," she said, while working on the night shift at 
Reynolds Tobacco Co. 

After graduation, she took orientation courses in 
Burlington, Vt., as a social worker apprentice for the Na- 
tional Council of Churches. And she planned to work for 
a year in Rochester, N. Y., at a home for the aged. 

Then, she went off to Europe with the Choral Ensem- 
ble. She had almost forgotten the application to the 
Peace Corps when her mother forwarded the letter of 
acceptance to her while the choir was singing in Germany. 


Intensive Training 
She called the intensive 10-weeks Peace Corps train- 
ing course at Carbondale, 111., "the hardest thing I've ever 
done. The things they asked us to do . . ." She who had 
never run anywhere found herself running twice around 
a lake, or a distance of four miles. 

Of 48 beginning trainees, some 30 of them finished 
the course and all will be in Tunisia, she thinks, at coastal 
cities of Tunis, Sfax or Sousse. 

The intensive French course she called "really good. 
All conversation." They studied at the English Language 
Service on the campus at Southern Illinois University. She 
said they learned just enough Arabic for greetings and 
signs, and are under obligation to continue studies in both 
languages during two years in Tunisia. 

"I asked to be put by myself," she said. "It will be 
good for me to fend for myself, to be on my own." She 
said she may try to live with an Arabian family: "It's the 
best way to learn the language." 

She's been frantically shopping and packing for a 
two-years supply of clothes. She bought one winter coat. 
The climate drops to 40 degrees, goes up to 80 and is very 
damp, she said. "I didn't know how they'd react to my 
old camel's hair coat," she said. 

Other supplies that must come under the 40 pounds 
of luggage limit, plus 150 extra pounds to arrive in six 
weeks are: 

— A sleeping bag in case of visits to other volunteers 
in cramped quarters. 

— A new instamatic camera. 

— A really good medical kit. 

— "So much literature to go with me." 

— An auto-harp that she will use in teaching drama 
or music, if necessary. 

The volunteers will be allowed to bring 300 pounds 
home after two years. 

President Praised 
The Peace Corps goes only by invitation, and she 
called President Habib Bourguiba of Tunisia "a dynamic 
leader who has done much for his country." 

The resourcefulness of the volunteer should be tested 
as each must find his own place to live and furnish it, she 
said. And it's up to them to find summer employment 
after school is out at such places as summer camps or a 
mental institution that she is considering. 

During their two years, they are given 45 days for 
travel, first in their host country, then in other African 
countries and Greece or Sicily. 

Travel will be by foot, bike, camel, bus or train. 

They are warned not to bother sending or receiving 
presents — too expensive through customs. And phoning 
home is a bit expensive. Their take-in allowance is from 
$35 to s$50. Parents can't send money. Living standards 
must be on a level with those of native teachers, she said. 

After two years, the volunteer will have saved $1,300 
after taxes of their modest pay, she said. 

The twinkling humor came out again as she explained 
some of their instructions: 

First of all, don't write post cards. 

The girls were taught to say "no" in Arabic — a toss 
of the head and a clicking sound of the teeth and tongue. 

But, above all, the youthful volunteers were urged to 
make themselves a part of the country and not a small 
American colony abroad. It's a good bet that Mary will 
spread a little sunshine. 



Mary Alice Powell came to Salem from St. Genevieve-in-tbe-Pines in Asheville, her hometown. She attended Salem from 
1956 to 1958 and completed her liberal arts degree at the University of North Carolina in 1960 where Jerome Adams 
also graduated that year. Both were 7najors in English. They tvere married in 1961 and entered Peace Corps training 
in 1963. For one year they have lived in Cali, Valle, Colombia, working in urban comm-unity development. Their site, 
a section of Cali, called a barrio, is a loiver {or ivorking) class barrio called Alfonso Lopez Pum.arejo. 

A true picture of our work here begins with the day 
we settled into our site. My husband and I had rented a 
brick house in the barrio through the assistance of the 
local padre. Probably due largely to his influence, the 
house was roomy, completed, and owned by a fair, affable 
landlord who asked but a minimal rental. A neighbor, 
Maria, who had negotiated the business of the house in 
place of the landlord, had mopped the floors prior to the 
day we moved in. All the neighbors by then knew of our 
arrival, and, needless to say, we were a curiosity. (There 
are actually a number of North Americans and Europeans 
living in Cali, but the residents of the workers' barrios 
do not come into contact with them. ) 

The day before we moved into our house, we hired a 
neighbor to construct a toilet where was previously only 
a deep hole surrounded by an outhouse structure made 
of brick. At that time none of the houses in the second 
etapa (the barrio is divided into four sections) had run- 
ning water. Thus naturally there was no sink, bath or 
shower. A small room with a dirt floor had been provided 
for bathing for such day when water would be installed. 
In the meantime, the people secured their water from 
nearby pilas, or water founts. Luckily, one of these was 
close to our house. We must have made twenty scorching 
trips daily to the pila before finally buying a hose long 
enough to reach the house. 


No sooner had we entered the house than scores of 
faces, little and big, appeared at the windows. Thinking 
ourselves to be in the true spirit of things, we left the 
door open to all who cared to come in. This proved to be 
a mistake, as we were not to see privacy again for some 
time to come. As I mentioned earlier, though, we were 
naturally curiosities, being foreign, speaking a different 
language, and, to the minds of the people, or course, quite 

My husband Jerry spent the entire day constructing 
a bed, which was to be our first piece of furniture. For 
my part, I busied myself painting the once horrid dark 
green and violent pink walls which constituted the living 
and dining rooms. We took turns running back and forth 
to the pila for water. 

As the day came to a close, I began to sense an 
unfortunate omission among the possessions with which 
we had arrived. What we had coimted as necessities in- 
cluded a two-burner electric stove (we did have elec- 
tricity ) , two suitcases of summer clothes, some eating 
utensils, two sheets, and a mosquito net. The omission was 
a pair of window curtains, and the full import of this 
oversight was to become apparent that night while pre- 
paring supper. 

The little stove rested all alone on the floor of a huge, 
otherwise completely empty living room — empty, that is, 
with the exception of me, squatting dutifully by the pots 
and burners. Crowded at the window must have been 
twenty-five or thirty children, fascinated by the haggard, 
bewildered newcomer. Jerry was out on an errand at the 
time, so I had no choice but to brave the children alone. 
I can hardly express the utter frustration I felt at being 
relentlessly gaped, jabbered and laughed at by these 
children. My repeated requests that they leave me alone 
only added to their general amusement. Particularly funny 
to them were my attempts to speak their language. They 
exhibited their amusement by feigning Chinese while 
trying to attract my attention. 

Needless to say they had my attention. I could but 
pretend to ignore them. The bedroom was the only place 
I could go for privacy, and there only for short periods 
at a time if I wanted a halfway palatable dinner. I think 
this experience is perhaps one of the most vivid in my 
memory for its sheer awfulness. I came close to bursting 
into tears. 

It is probably obvious to say that when Jerry came 
home we ate in the bedroom. We would have anyway, 
since the bed was the only place to sit in the house. Even 
so, we were soon joined by a neighbor's son, whom we 

did entertain, as he had been and was to be one of our 
most faithful helpers. We were soon to learn that privacy, 
that prerogative so cherished to North Americans, was 
a prerogative forgotten to Peace Corps volunteers. 

That night we hardly slept. The house was literally 
bombarded with every sort of insect and creature imagin- 
able — mosquitos, flies, ants, big, black, buzzing beetles, 
moths, mice, scorpions, unknowns, and giant cockroaches 
that fly! This conglomeration of creatures made so much 
noise that I kept thinking someone was breaking into 
the house. In the morning, after having emptied an entire 
suitcase, I found that one of the scorpions — a pregnant 
one — had spent the night among the disarray of clothes. 

The initial shock of the first day having passed, the 
next few months were spent getting settled and acquaint- 
ing ourselves with the language and with the barrio. Jerry 
made nearly all our furniture, and we gradually added to 
the house such things as a bamboo fence, fresh paint, 
and a roof for the outhouse. A good overall cleaning and 
the addition of screens did much to relieve the insect 
problem, but somehow the scorpions and cockroaches still 
find their way in. Insect repellent doesn't phase them. 

One of the greatest luxuries came about four months 
after our arrival when running water was installed. Some 
of our neighbors and we had formed a commission to 
secure the water and had emerged victorious. No more 
sponge baths, conserving water, or waiting in line in the 
hot sun at a crowded pila. Unfortunately the water 
progress was then stalled for some five months, as the 
company which manufactures the connections has been 
on strike. However, they are installing again now. 

Before going any further, it might be best to explain 
what barrio Alfonso Lopez is like. In the first place, it is 
the largest in Cali, having somewhere between 40-50,000 
inhabitants. It is divided into four sections, the first three 
of which are our territory. Since our area is so large, we 
have tried to become known throughout the barrio while 
establishing closer personal contact with certain individuals 
and groups. One of the best ways to establish this contact 
turned out to be through fiestas and social gatherings. As 
foolish as we felt dancing to strange music and struggling 
to converse in broken Spanish, the people were delighted 
that we had tried. They considered us well-adapted to 
the culture and more "one of them" when we danced, 
drank, and laughed with them naturally. 

The barrio varies considerably on the socio-economic 
scale. It is not destitute but consists of families ranging 
from very poor to rather comfortable. The majority of 
the people are occupied in manual labor; however, we 
do have friends who are salesmen, and some of the 
teachers in the barrio schools are barrio residents. None- 
theless, teachers and salesmen on the barrio level in 
Colombia do not enjoy a change in status. They are still 
considered lower class according to the standards of the 
middle or upper class. There remains a sharp division

of the consumer cooperative which ice are forming. The 
cooperative mevibers are seen in the process of voting 
for their council of directors. Within a few weeks, we 
should be ready to open the store. 

between the classes, the upper class still maintaining a 
patronal attitude toward the lower. 

The reaction of the barrio people to their position 
tends to be one of acceptance. Many times they refer to 
themselves as poor when in fact, their resources are fairly 
substantial. In line with this, they often not only ask but 
also expect assistance from the well-to-do, instead of 
attempting to solve their problems on their own initiative. 
This is where our work comes in. What we try to do is to 
instill in these people a sense of pride in their own 
accomplishments through community action. Called accion 
comiinal, this theory has been coming into practice in 
Colombia since the foundation of the national department 
of accion comunal in 1959. The Peace Corps thus serves 
as a catalyst while hoping that the people themselves will 
become involved as the real workers and instigators of 
community projects. 

The primary reason for our concern with barrio de- 
velopment on this level is, on a broad basis, to participate 
in the social and economic progress of the underprivileged 
class. We feel that the only way for the people to achieve 
this is through their own efforts. A continuation of pa- 
tronal support through regalos, or charitable gifts, would 
only serve to maintain the status quo rather than effect 
any change. We feel that our work in this aspect is two- 
fold. As our counterpart agency is a private organization 
of businessmen dedicated to assisting the social and eco- 
nomic development of working-class barrios, we hope not 
only to promote self-support among the people but also 
to inspire in our counterpart agency a sense of the worth 
of these people on their own merit — a confidence in 
their ability to rise above their problems to achieve their 
goals, using their own resources. 

Since this type of goal in volunteer work is a rather 
intangible one, perhaps the first thing a volunteer realizes 
is that he is not going to change the world. The mark we 
leave may be minute in relation to the entire scheme in 
an underdeveloped country, but any mark is better than 
none at all. The important thing one must continue to 
remind himself is not to expect too much. It is easy to 
fall into the habit of using North American standards 
while attempting a project — and expecting North Ameri- 
can results. There won't be any such results, nor is it 
fair to demand them. One can only hope through months 
of trial and repetition to leave an idea which may be 
picked up and used the next time around. 

When we first came we were inclined to be impatient 
and discouraged. We didn't feel we were getting any- 
where. We arranged meetings and nobody appeared. We 
exacted promises which were never fulfilled. We were 
led to believe there was interest in a project when there 
was apparently no interest at all. We were slightly baffled. 
A simple example is the attempt to get garbage col- 
lection for the barrio. The junta (governing body) of the 
barrio was enthusiastic over the idea, and there certainly 
was a need for collection, but it took about four different 
appointed meetings with junta members before anyone 
actually joined us at the office of public works to make 
the petition. When we finally did have the meeting and 
secured an affirmative answer to our request, we waited 
so long for the garbage trucks to appear that we had 
just about given up the project. 

Naturally we were disappointed. But this was but an 
indication of the difficulties we would again and again 

This picture was taken at the 50th birthday celebration 
of Senor ls77iael Vasquez. The hat I am wearing was 
given my husband, Jerry, by Sr. Vasquez, because ]erry 
had on several occasions admired Sr. Vasquez's hat! Sr. 
Vasquez's hat (which he is wearing) goes with him. at all 
times. He has never been seen without his hat on his 
head. Incidentally , Sr. Vasquez is a member of the con- 
sumer cooperative and had that night purchased his 
sixth share. 

encounter. We had to learn to take disappointments light- 
ly and assume an attitude of tranquility if we were to 
work effectively for two years. The fact is that after re- 
peated visits to the office of public works and several 
months of waiting, the garbage collection did come, and 
when it did, we had a barrio-wide campaign to clean up 
the accumulated trash of the four years the barrio had 
been in existence. And the people did come out of their 
houses, pick up shovels, and scrape up the garbage that 
had brought filth and health hazards to their barrio. 

Other projects have had similar ups and downs. In a 
typing class of girls with no more than five years of edu- 
cation, I have often questioned the value of the effort. 
After dozens of repetitions, still there are many who don't 
remember. And to figure something out, even in typing, 
is almost impossible for a group of girls who have been 
subjected to rote learning methods all their lives. But what 
mattered ultimately is that there were some in the class 
who did learn and who would derive benefit from the 
course. I would hope that for all of them it was a step in 
the process of learning and in the opening up of new 

Perhaps one of the most meaningful projects we are 
involved in at present is the formation of a consumer 
cooperative. Here is an example of a program in which 
the people themselves are in on the groundwork and will 
be able to see the realistic benefits of their efforts. The 
members and the provisional directors have worked to 
promote membership, learn and explain to others the 
cooperative movement, and to arrive at the moment when 
they can finally open a store. We and a volunteer specifi- 
cally working in the formation of cooperatives have sug- 


gested, assisted, and encouraged, but the actual direction 
is in the hands of the cooperative members. 

It would be fruitless to try to go into every project 
we have promoted since our arrival. What we try to ac- 
complish is to seek out the needs and desires of the 
people, then provide the impetus for the realization of 
these desires by means of developing responsibility and 
leadership. In most cases it would be far simpler to take 
over full responsibility ourselves, but this would defeat the 
purpose of our existence here. 

Naturally all the ideas so far expounded can only be 
considered as personal. I certainly could not pretend to 
speak for all volunteers, as each does his job the way he 
feels is best. There really isn't one right method. In the 
future Jerry and I hope to work with our counterpart 
agency's newly inaugurated community center in the crea- 
tion of a social agency which will offer various services. 
Yet it must be remembered that projects like this may 
or may not succeed. If it does, it will provide the people 

with a nucleus through which they can participate in the 
development of their community. 

Thus, as volunteers, we can only be a small part of a 
huge process of development already being explored in 
Latin America. Why we want to be this small part is 
difficult to relate. I think that Jerry and I had various 
reasons for joining the Peace Corps. One was certainly to 
take part in an exciting adventure, exploring the realities 
of another country, despite the possible pitfalls. Another 
was to participate in a program which appealed to our 
beliefs and ideals — a program which we considered an 
opportunity foolish to pass by. Lastly, I suppose we simply 
want to help. However vague the reasons sound even to 
our own ears, there is no doubt in my mind that it will 
be a two years well spent in relation to our own futures. 
I can say with certainty that we could never give to Co- 
lombia in two years what Colombia will have given to 
us for the rest of our lives. 



At the end of her freshman year, Jane Frost, of Burlington, enrolled as a student 
in Garanhuns, Brazil, for a year. Her mother was asked to share sovie of Jane's 
letters, and she happily agreed to let us read over her shoulder. 

July 30, 1964 

I surely do wish you were here — you'd never believe 
what it's like. Garanhuns is in the mountains (seems just 
like Montreat! ) and the sunsets — wow! But let me tell 
you about our trip . . . 

The flight from Miami was marvelous and the food 
was great. We stopped at Santa Domingo and Caracas 
before getting to Belem where arrangements had been 
made for us to stay at the guesthouse during our 8 hour 
wait, so we got about 2 hours of sleep. We got to Recife 
about 6 — it's a beautiful city, especially at sunset with 
the lights being turned on. We had supper at the airport 
and then went to the Agnes. (The Agnes Erskine School 
operated by the Presbyterian Church). A pretty place 
with tall royal palms growing in the yard. We had a 
short vesper service and then went to bed. It was good 
we were dead tired because straw mattresses feel like 
boards and the pillows like rock piles. 

In the morning it was pouring rain, but, after a break- 
fast of melted cheese, toast and coffee (a normal breakfast 
here), we still went shopping. We "sold" checks to get 
some cruzeiros, the only form of money. The rate was 
13,370 cruzeiros per $1.00. I had $45.00 for shopping. I 
bought a pillow, 2 pillow cases, 4 sheets, a double blanket, 
3 bath towels, 1 hand towel, 10 coathangars, 1 pair flats, 
stationary, glue, and a bathing suit and had over $10 left. 

We got our identification cards; it took about two 
hours and we were each fingerprinted again and again. 

Before we went back to the Agnes, we drove to Orlina, 
a small town outside Recife. There is a big hill from 
which we got a beautiful view of Recife. And stars! I 
have never seen so many. 

Saturday afternoon we made the three and a half 
hour trip here to Garanhuns. The road was pretty good 
until we turned onto a dirt road halfway. It was rather 
bumpy — and we had to go around seven or eight 
brahmas who just would not get out of the middle of the 

Monday afternoon we moved into the dorm. You 
should read the regulations. 

2. Return to the dormitory immediately after classes 
avoiding conversations with strangers between the 
school and the dormitory. (This especially includes 
male classmates.) 

3. Avoid dresses that are low-necked, too short, or too 
tight skirted. 

8. Obey the bells. (They only ring every five minutes! ) 

10. Do not overindulge in conversations with young men 
during parties at the school. (No holding hands 
allowed. ) 

1 1 . Have absolute respect in reference to the passage of 
the director, professors, old people, and visitors. 
( Bow. ) 

15. Do not write names on walls or on trunks of trees. 


20. Do not look out upstairs windows and do not throw 
trash out of windows. (The bottom halves are 
boarded up. )

It's really not as bad as it sounds. Monday night we 
all went to the movies and didn't get to bed until 11:30. 
Tuesday afternoon we rode out to the church the first 
American students built in Rua de Foice, "the street of 
the knife. " It is named so because so many murders have 
taken place in this town of 500 people. The Church is 
made of sticks tied together with vines, packed in mud, 
and then covered inside and out with cement. It has a 
tile roof. It doubles as a school in the day. Wednesday 
night we attended service there and it was packed with 
about a hundred people who sang with great gusto and 
listened to the sermon with equal fervor. The building is 
lighted with two kerosene lanterns. The doors were left 
open and a cool breeze blew through. The people were 
dressed in torn and tattered dresses, shirts, light jackets, 
pajama tops and towels. Most were missing several teeth. 

We visited in one of the better homes. It was a mud 
hut with dirt floors, a tile roof black with soot from the 
wood-burning stone hearth, no windows, mud walls in- 
side forming three rooms, a porch out front where the 
man's goats are kept at night so they won't be stolen 
(the babies and small children stay here during church). 
The town has no water supply. The women have to carry 
it from Garanhuns on their heads. And the whole town 
is swarming with flies. It made me sick and furious that 
these people live like this while we in the States complain. 

Now to lighten the mood some . . . My roommate 
is also my Portuguese teacher. Neide is very sweet. In 
fact, all the girls are, and the boys, too. Everyone stares 
at us wherever we go, but all are glad to help us in any 
possible way. The girls in the dorm fix their towels in a 
fan shape on the bed, so Neide fixes mine every day. This 
morning she tore my bed completely apart and put it 
back together with the bottom sheet, then the blanket, 
and then the top sheet. Everyone says it warmer that way 
and so I'll leave it. They have a good sense of humor 
and love to laugh at our mistakes, so we laugh, too. 

When I walked into the room after supper and 
turned on the light, I looked back at the doorway and 
saw this thing flopping along the floor. When I saw it 
try to fly, I realized it was a bat! You should have heard 
me scream! Everyone came running, and finally, someone 
killed it! O-o-o-o-h! 


September 4, 1964 

I just got back from a ride to the post office and 
decided it was about time to try to describe Granhuns to 
you. It is a city of 30-35 thousand people. Since it is built 
on several mountains and the valleys between, I can 
stand in front of the Grande Hotel at one side of the city 
and see to the other end of the town. 

The streets, either mud or paved with stones, are of 
no uniform width. There are many narrow, steep streets 
coming into the wider central streets. As in all Brazilian 
towns of every size there are many plaza (parks) sep- 
arating the two lanes of traffic. 

Pastel-colored stores line the business section — pink, 
green, blue, yellow, beige. Most of the stores have open 
fronts with steel bars or partitions which are pulled down 
at night. Generally we must go to a separate store for each 
type of article we want. 

On big feira ( market ) days ( Fri. aft. and Sat. morn ) , 
everyone comes with wares and up go the booths on the 
sidewalks and in the streets so that it is nearly impossible 
to drive a car through many of the streets. About half 
the booths have shoes and leather goods displayed. Another 
section of the jeira has all the food. I haven't seen it yet, 
but those who have say it rather takes away your appetite. 
I have been in the meat market and that's really an ex- 
perience! Actually it has about the same things we buy in 
the States, but there it is clean and neatly packaged; here 
it hangs or lies in the open and in summer is covered 
with flies. 

September 8, 1964 

About going downtown — custom dictates that two 
girls go together, no matter what age or who they are 
with, but we do not have to have an adult along. When 
the girls here "date", they usually take a younger brother 
or sister along, so Saturday night an 1 1 year old boy went 
along with us. Customs down here are awfully different 
from those in the States and they are hard . . . but we

and her classmates prepare for a parade. "We practiced 
weeks! Parades are 'bie' doivn here." 

are trying our best to abide by them and not do anything 
that would be objectionable. 

I love Brazil; I love the school, people, and country. 
I hate the dorm and I'm going to hate to leave next 
summer. And someday I'm going to come back down 
here. I haven't learned Portuguese and I've forgotten all 
my English, and it's been a long hard weekend, and I'm 
sore all over, dead-tired, half-asleep, and in a horrible 

I'm numbering the envelopes because starting last 
week we can only send and receive mail once or twice 
a week and no one is sure which days. 

September 29, 1964 

It's almost time for us to go to the 'Women of the 
Church meeting. I get to play the organ again, although 
you'd think that after last time, they'd never let me near 
it again. I had to sight-read everything and on one hymn 
they didn't quite sing the tune I tried to play, so I quit. 
I surely don't know why they picked me to play that 
hunk of junk they call an organ. If I could practice some, 
it might not be quite as bad, but I can't — and I don't 
know the little oddities this organ has — or the hymns! 
The first Sunday this month, Communion service, I 
walked into church very innocently, and Rev. Gerson 
came back and asked me to play for them. They only 
sang six hymns, of which I may have known two. They 
must really be desperate for an organist. 

Oh, tell Bobby I'm playing "Jesus, Joy of Man's De- 
siring" for the Institute Choir, both here and in Recife — 
more fun. 

Got to run. 

September 30, 1964 

Last night was fun. All the light in the church went 
out about half-way through one hymn. We finished the 
verse and had to quit. They got some candles and went 
on with the service. 

I think I told you that were were going to Aracaju. 
Well, it was quite a trip! We left at mid-day Friday. The 
road was bumpy, but not too bad — at first. Then we 
came to the "rivers," huge puddles of water covering the 
road from side to side for about 15 yards, and from 1 to 
3 feet deep, one after another for miles and miles. Oc- 
casionally we went through a village ( two or three huts 
by the side of the road ) but for the most part we rode 
through nothing. It was just deserted. Then around 10:00 
we found a city, Penedo, and rolled up to a beautiful 
modern hotel with a neon sign out front saying, in Eng- 
lish, "Hamburgers, Sundies, Milkshakes, Ice Cream." 'We 
ate and ate. They were the first and only we've seen. 

'When we went up to our rooms, we found carpeted 
floors, soft beds, smooth mirrors, a phone, closets, a clean 
bathroom, with running hot water in the sink as well as 
the shower, and glass sliding doors opening onto a private 
balcony with a beautiful view of the San Francisco River 
( the largest river completely inside Brazil ) . 

■When we woke the next morning (Seu. Spach 
called us at 6:45), we went out on the balcony and saw 
a tremendous sight. The river is wide and blue and lay 
sparkling in the sun. There were several sailboats in sight, 
with red, blue, yellow and white sails. Nearby were two 
old churches with tall spires reaching far above the red 

tile roofs of the little stores and houses. Down the street 
we could see the feira with stalls of goods lining the streets 
and sidewalks. It was really beautiful. 

After a good breakfast, we took a ferry across the 
river and drove on to Aracaju in a Chevrolet truck, ar- 
riving at mid-day. We figured that it had taken 14 hours 
of driving to cover 200 miles. 

[After a weekend full of activities connected with 
assisting in a spiritual life campaign, they made the return 

'We left Aracaju Monday at 6:30 a.m. and got back 
here to Garanhuns at 6:30 — a little better time. The 
trip was awfully rough. Seu. Spach said that he'd made 
only one rougher trip in the 14 years he's been here. Gaye 
is still in bed this week, but nobody knows what's wrong 
with her. She's very weak and dizzy. The doctor gave her 
three kinds of pills and some shots, but I don't know 
whether they are helping; I surely hope so! 

Thanks for sending some film. I hope it gets here. 
I'm on my last roll. Speaking of pictures, how about 
taking some of you all and sending them. The other girls 
have gotten some, so they will come through. Also, when 
you send some of the books I wanted, how 'bout sticking 
in my Bach Inventions and Haydn Sonatas and maybe a 
couple of pieces of sheet music ( popular ) . I need to prac- 
tice, and there is quite a good teacher here, so I may 
take next semester. 

The exchange rate is still going up and should be 
about 1800 cruzeiros per Sl.OO now. It really seems funny 
to say, "Do you have change for a 5000?" but when you 
change it into American money, it's only $3.00. I am 
sending some for you to see. All bills are the same size, 
but the color varies with the denomination. These are 
new bills, but they use them til they literally fall apart. 
Then they glue them back together and use them some 
more. Notice where they are printed, too. (American 
Bank Note Co. and a London firm ) . Brazil does not print 
any of the money she uses. 

Things cost so little here — for us, anyway. Four or 
five thousand cruzeiros is a lot to some of these people • — ■ 
in fact, to most of them. Anyway, I decided that I've got 
to have some more clothes and I'm going to have them 
made. The one-piece of material I've picked so far cost 
about S2.00. Donna just had two 'Villager-type dresses 
made and the seamstress charged her — for making the 
dress, the belt, buying the buttons, etc. — less than $2.00. 
We couldn't believe it. 

Well, this is long enough, and we've got to bake a 
cake for a surprise birthday in half an hour. 

November 8, 1964 

Donna and I were talking last night and we decided 
that it just wouldn't be possible for us to go home next 
summer and act as if this year in Brazil were completely 
separate from all the rest of our lives, because it isn't. It 
will influence our lives and the lives of others from now 
on. We who are down here now will always be extremely 
close. We will have shared experiences and thoughts and 
feelings that no one else has. And we can never forget the 
wonderful friends we have here. 

One of the reasons I came to Brazil was to decide 
if I would come back to Brazil to live and work. I know 
now I will. 



As one of those named in the title Alumnae House 
you have been hostess by proxy, to a variety of guests 
you should really have had the privilege of meeting. You 
would have liked them. 

Among those you have been entertaining (other than 
your Salem sisters) are: 

— Governor's School visiting "dignitaries" and V. I. P.'s 
in education in the United States, among them Gover- 
nor Sanford himself; 

— prospective Salem faculty, who looked us over and liked 
us and stayed; 

— our commuting harp instructor who teaches at East 
Carolina in Greenville as well as in Greensboro and 
Raleigh, where she makes her home — when she hap- 
pens to be there; 

— guests and relatives of faculty members who especially 
appreciate this convenient accommodation; 

— several prospective students and their mothers; 

— the Dutch organ tuner, who looks forward to the next 
stay in your House because "it's a little like going home 
to the old country;" and, 

— parents of present students. 

Among this last named group, we particularly note 
the three day visit of the Widar Nilssons. Their daughter 
Lena is one of 39 girls from 2 1 countries who have held 
Strong Scholarships since they were begun fifteen years 
ago. But Lena Nilsson of Falkenberg, Sweden is the first 
who has been able to show her parents her American Alma 

The Nilssons were guests in the Alumnae House 
along with the Evert Nilssons, Lena's aunt and uncle from 
Bridgeport, Connecticut. 

Lena's sister, Eva 17, is also in the United States as 
an American Field Service exchange student attending 
high school in St. Paul Minnesota. The "pull" of two 
daughters, brother and sister-in-law was enough to bring 
the "Widar Nilssons to the States for their first visit. 

They made a good visit, "fulfilling their desire of 
many years to come to the United States." A month-long 
trip all the way to Los Angeles gave them a chance to be 
"impressed by the beauty of the country as we saw cities 
and the farm lands, mountains, plains and seashore on our 
long trip," said Lena's mother. 

Of Salem she commented, "It is so beautiful here. 
Everyone has been so kind to us." Lena, who came to 
Salem through the International Institute of Education, 
said, "If I had made the choice (of a college) myself, I 
couldn't have made it so perfectly. It makes me and my 
parents very happy that Salem chose me. I just love it 
here. I like the school because it is small. I have a good 
opportunity to know students and the faculty, and every- 
one is so friendly." 

Living on campus in the center of activity the Nils- 
son's had a particularly good opportunity to come to know 
and feel a part of Salem. They now share in a special 
way the experience that is Lena's. 


In late November, President Gramley went to San 
Francisco to plead Winston-Salem's case for a second All- 
America City award. Charlotte also was in the race, making 
the competition in North Carolina keener than ever in 
trying to gain a place among the 10 (of 22 finalists) U. S. 
cities to be honored. 

Dr. Gramley began his brief speech in this manner: 
"... I am Dale H. Gramley, a registered voter and 
participating citizen of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, 
where I am president of Salem Academy and College." A 
Salem girl of the years since 1949, when Dr. Gramley 
"entered Salem," might have guessed accurately the identi- 
ty of the speaker from just two words: "participating 

Salem was featured in his argument before the jury 
when he listed the eleven achievements Winston-Salem 
reported for All-America consideration. Number one was 
The Governor's School in residence on the campus; num- 
ber five, the 1 1,750,000 Arts Center Building at the 

College. By virtue of the simple fact that they are "partici- 
pating citizens" of Winston-Salem the 1000 Salem, alumnae 
and the 500 present Salem students are involved in many 
of the eleven achievements listed by Dr. Gramley: politi- 
cal activities, Junior League action, the drive to "win" the 
School of Performing Arts, and the program of N. C. 
Advancement School where Salem students now tutor. 
Educational interests in general produced eight of the 
eleven achievements under consideration. 

Dr. Gramley concluded, "In the year on 'trial' Win- 
ston-Salem demonstrated that it is a community of com- 
petence, conscience and contributions. It proved itself to 
be a seed bed of America's ideals in action and a com- 
munity willing and ready to support a good life for good 

Salem is proud of being located in such a community, 
prouder still of having helped for almost 200 years to 
make the community what it is, and proudest of all that 
the community's spokesman again was Salem's "participat- 
ing citizen, " Dr. Gramley.

A sentence from Kate Brooke's "pink 
sheet" seems a particularly good one with 
which to begin Class Notes. She sums up 
what many Salem girls might say, "I have 
had a long life, many privileges, hard 
work, and many good friends." 


Clemmie Tise Anderson passed away on 
October 19. She was from a real "Salem 
family," and for her life and influence we 
express appreciation to her nieces Martha 
Rawlings Hodgin '40 and Nancy Rawlings 
Baity '45. A nephew, Clarence Rawlings, 
married a Salem girl, Janet Lowe '31. 

Mrs. Pauline Warwick of Mount UUa 
thoughtfully wrote us of the death of 
Emma Goodman. "She loved Salem Col- 
lege and she was a truly fine lady. Every- 
one who knew her loved her dearly. I 
cared for her over three years in her 
home: she was always so kind and hum- 
ble. She will be greatly missed by all."

With sorrow we record the death of 
Bernice Pharr White in Concord on Oc- 
tober 20. To her family goes the sym- 
pathy of Salem friends and classmates. 

Our deepest sympathy to Louise Harper 
Fox and her family in the death of her 
beloved husband Joseph B. Fox on Oc- 
tober 2. Mr. Fox, a native of Philadelphia 
came to Wilmington, N. C. in 1909 to 
become general manager for the Harper 
Steamship Lines. It was there he met our 
charming Louise. Since 1913 he has owned 
and operated with his two sons, the Fox's 
Holsum Bakery, Inc. Louise, the two sons, 
Joseph B. and John H., and a daughter, 
Mrs. P. S. McDaniel, eight grandchildren 


and eleven great-grandchildren survive. He 
was a member of the Catholic Church, the 
Cape Fear Club and the Cape Fear Coun- 
try Club. They were an outstanding family 
in Wilmington, N. C. and community. 

Susie Nunn Hines and husband, Rhotan, 
who attended our 60th Reunion, are fail- 
ing in health but are still courageously 
carrying on with their home open to 
tourists. Susie has an outstanding family, 
all talented in music and so attentive to 
their parents. 

Lucy Reavis Meinung continues in a 
very feeble state of health but is given 
every care by her daughter, Mary Jane, 
and family. Our love and appreciation to 
Lucy and Mary Jane who have been such 
friends to our class. 

Carrie O. Grantham, Pauline Sessoms 
Burkel, and Lelia Vest Russell are still 
active in service to others. 

It is hard to realize that our class of 
1903 is one of the oldest to report news 
for the Salem Bulletin. Although most of 
us are near four score, half our class of 
38 still survive. We have been so blessed. 
Please let's have a bit of news or greeting 
to Salem from those who seldom or never 
write. If not able to write, a friend would 
write. "A stranger is a friend you haven't 
met yet." 

Last September I had a most marvelous 
trip — all alone but never alone. On Sep- 
tember 10, I flew to Seattle, Washington, 
had a day's sightseeing, including a trip 
through the Government Locks, over the 
oldest floating bridge in the world; then 
a boat trip to Victoria, Canada, which with 
its English style gardens, hanging baskets, 
the magnificent Empress Hotel was most 
enchanting. One forgot the long tramp 
through the Butchant Gardens, so thrilled 
with the beauty — declaring they sur- 
passed all other gardens. Then in Port- 
land, Oregon, the Rose Gardens and the 
Lambert Gardens were like a fairyland. I 
was deeply impressed with the inscription 
on the plaque to the Lambert Gardens. 
The Philosopher's Soul, "The Philosopher's 
soul dwells in his head. The poet's soul 
is in his heart, but the soul of the man 
who lives among flowers, walks hand in 
hand with eternity." Then a trip to Bonne- 
ville Dam and to the Sanctuary of Our 
Sorrowful Mother, dedicated to Mary and 
to all motherhood. Then down the Red- 
wood Highway through the majestic tallest 
trees in the world, the gigantic supervirens. 
On to San Francisco, over the Golden 
Gate Bridge, the narrow uphill streets — 
the trip to the top of the Mark, a tour 
over the bridges, to Berkley University, 
to Muir Woods, etc. Then to Sacramen- 
to and on to Reno. This was my first 
visit to Nevada, making the 48th state 
I have been into. I did not care for 
gambling — such a waste of time and 
life — but enjoyed the beautiful Lake 
Tahoe. Then into Yosemite Park — the 
memory of the Yosemite fall as I saw it 
in 1955 — now all dried up; but the 
giant Sequoias, one 3800 years old, were 
still standing as sentinels — how sublime. 
Who would not be filled with awe to be- 

hold such grandeur, to touch a redwood 
to pose for a snap. We drove through the 
Wiwona tree tunnel and recalled the 
Chandalier tunnel, the General Grant, and 
the largest Sequoia, the Sherman tree in 
Sequoia Park. Then a visit with a great- 
niece, Laurel Vest Funk, near Los Angeles, 
a day in San Diego, through the largest 
zoo in the world, a trip with their three 
children to Disneyland; the last and most 
memorable, a visit with Laurel to see Mrs. 
Hannah Nixon, the most charming and 
gracious mother of Richard Nixon. On the 
wall a motto to Dick from his grand- 
mother Milhous; "Lives of great men all 
remind us we can make our lives sublime 
and departing leave behind us, footprints 
on the sands of time." I was so impressed 
with the sincerity, the true greatness of 
the Nixon family that I shall ever hope 
to live to see the Nixons in the White 
House. Then the flight home over the 
Grand Canyon, which surpassed any artist's 

Health and happy New Year to each 
of our 1903 class. Is there anyone who 
might like to make a trip with me to 
Alaska this year.' 


The Class of '06 will be very sorry to

a stroke and is now at Wesley Nursing 
Center, 3^00 Shamrock Drive, Charlotte.

From her son we learn of the death of 
Eleanor Green Jordan in Lynchburg, Va., 
on September 30. He writes, "She was 
until her final and long illness, continually 
interested in Salem." We extend to her 
family our sincere sympathy. 

From her son, also comes news of 
Bessie Speas Coghlan's death on Decem-

sympathy to the members of her family. 

Telegraphic greetings received on Christ-

A letter from Saidee Robbins Harris so 
full of information, so we must share it. 
"I am here in Charlotte visiting my daugh- 
ter and family and we are having a won- 
derful time. Indeed with a family of three 
children, nine grandchildren and four great 
grandchildren scattered in five states, my 
correspondence is interesting and many 
letters come and go. A grandson and 
granddaughter are in Florida State Uni- 
versity in Tallahassee, Fla. and a grand- 
daughter, who graduated from Skidmore 
College at Sarasota Springs, N. Y., is a 
post graduate student at Duke in Pre- 
Medical School. Charles' son is an Epis- 
copal Minister in Washington, D. C. He 
is married. I am here with Florence, a 
Salem graduate of 1941, and two boys. 
At home I am so interested in my Church, 
Woman's Club, social clubs and as the 
Chairman of the Coordination of the 
Aging. I have such wonderful contacts 
with so many of our retired citizens — in 
clubs, bowling, hiking, meetings every 
week — all for good times. By the way, 
the Raleigh Woman's Club honored me 
by dedicating its 1965 Year Book to me. 

Appointed by Gov. Hodges and again 
by Gov. Sanford on the Confederate Cen- 
tennial Commission, I have enjoyed the 
meetings, placing of markers and re- 
enactment of Civil War Battles. (Worked 
with Mrs. Seippel of Winston-Salem. ) 

I did not want this letter to sound 
boastful but I have so much to be grate- 
ful for. I still travel quite a bit; looking 
forward to a pleasant cruise this winter 
and spring if my bad knee gets better. 
Hope all is fine with you and that I will 
see you in 1965." 

At Salem Saidee was the Boarding Stu- 
dent contact with the Day Pupils and has 
always been a friendly, outgoing person. 
She and her husband, Charles Harris, were 
young sweethearts at that time. We all 
were thrilled over the romance then and 
enjoyed with her all the candy and gifts 
he sent her. He died some years ago. 

Appearing in the Twin City Sentinel, 
Winston-Salem, November 21, 1964, was 
a half page article, with several illustra- 
tions of Lucy Brown James' paintings of 
the restored buildings in Old Salem, to- 
gether with her picture at her easel. Sev- 
eral weeks ago Lucy held a private exhibit 
of her art work in her apartment at 805 
West End Blvd., Winston-Salem. Prints 
of Old Salem are being sold by the Green-

and valuable experience: 

"I left with 27 other North Carolina 
women on a beautiful Fall bus trip to

Women. (October 3-11). 

There were 2,500 women from all parts 
of the nation and world attending the 

The role of the laity in the mission of 
the church was the main theme of the 
meeting. 2,351 state and local interde- 
nominational councils of church women 
participated. These local councils serve 13 
million women of the 31 Protestant and 
Orthodox churches belonging to the Na- 
tional Council of Churches. 

Two dozen prominent Christian women 
from overseas shared in the program. They 
included one of the first women doctors 
in Figi, the dean of a large nursing school 
in the Phillipines, a woman theologian 
from Japan, and a social worker from

Molly Brown Conti has led a very active 
life since her graduation in 1914. At 
Salem she was one of the "little girls" 
who stayed at the school through the 

In the years following Salem days she 
taught at a settlement school in the Ten- 
nessee mountains. There she became in- 
terested in social service, in which field 
she has remained active. In '56-57 she 
did graduate study at the University of 
Pa. School of Social Work where she had 
been medical social worker for the School 
of Medicine. She also was social case 
worker for Jefferson Medical College in 
Philadelphia. The following are extracts 
from her written account of the summer 
trip of 1964. 

"A dear friend of my family died after 
forty years in this country. He was a 
metallurgical engineer from Norway and 
I wanted to meet his people and see his 
country. So, on June 2 I left Idlewild Air- 
port via SAS Jet. I recommend this air- 
line for impeccable services of their host- 
esses. We arrived in Prestwick, Scotland 
at 9 a.m. the next day and the first sight 
greeting me was a handsome Scot in full 
Kiltie regalia, playing his bagpipe. Then 
via Oslo, Bergen and the West Coast, I 
went on to Trondheim, Norway (which 
is 3 degrees south of the Arctic circle). 
Language did not bother me, as much 
came back to me from the travels of my 
early years with my mother. And besides, 
today English is widely spoken and taught 
in all Norwegian Schools. 

I was warmly received by my Trond- 
heim friends who live on a promontory 
overlooking the Trondheim Fijord: salmon 
spawn up the fijords and I had some 
wonderful Norwegian cooking: salmon 
served with cream having drops of horse- 
radish sauce whipped into it; flat bread, 
also fish soup. 

The good people took me in their car 
high out on the fijords and to the ski 


runs. High up in the mountains are hun- 
dreds of gushing streams from the melting 
snows and electric power is plentiful and 
cheap. There are vast forests of trees on 
the mountain sides, a resource comforting 
to see. 

In Trondheim, the Nidaros Cathedral 
had its beginnings 900 years ago. It is 
built of soapstone — tarnished green in 
color and beautiful with age. The main 
door has a Romanesque arch and inside 
one looks up at the high graceful Gothic 
arches. As one goes back of the altar there 
are crypts and the stones look older. The 
carvings of the saints and gargoyles are 
aged and look as if they might have been 
done without a chisel. 

The service is Lutheran as is prevalent 
in this country. About 1100 A.D. Olav 
Tryggvasson reawakened Christianity by 
the sword and the cathedral was started at 
that time. His statue stands in the beauti- 
ful flower market — a handsome broad- 
shouldered "warrior for the right" with a 
sword in one hand and the Christian 
cross in the other. 

The old Viking ships are now museum 
pieces. One wonders how they were made 
so strong. It is interesting and fitting that 
today, the Technical School in Trondheim 
is one of the finest in the world. 

Social laws are very progressive and ex- 
cellent hospital care is provided for the 
aged without cost, even if they can pay. 

I came down through the Trondelag 
mountains to Oslo and there saw the Uni- 
versity. Then I visited the 70 acre Froegner 
Park with the renowned Vigelund nude 
statuary. The statues representing all ages 
from tiny babies to old people are done 
in stone marble and bronze but they seem 
almost to speak to you. 

Set where the Mala River flows around 
the city into the Baltic, the Grand Hotel 
in Stockholm was a joy with impeccable 
appoints. At the time, Mr. Khrushchev 
was making his Swedish visits, but I did 
not see him. The people did not want 
him but they treated him well. 

In Copenhagen he had arrived with 
his party of 60 and had lunch at a .gor- 
geous restaurant ahead of me. So only 
soup and Cafe au lait were available. How- 
ever, from the restaurant I could see the 
harbor and the little mermaid. Her head 
had been restored, made from the pre- 
vious mold."

of the death of Ina Phillips Bullock in

express our sympathy. 

My one New Year's resolution is to try 
to redeem myself as 1917's reporter, but 
I can keep it only with your help. This 
time it was easy, however, due to a num- 
ber of heartwarming Christmas messages. 

Hallie Allen Trotter wrote that she and 
Edward are still enjoying life in Sarasota. 
When she and her son Gordon were on 
a tour of Europe last summer, he met a 
lovely girl to whom he will be married 
in April. 

Betsy Butner Rigsbee was expecting a 
large number of her family for Christ- 
mas on their farm near Arlington, Ind. It 
has been said that the true reward of 
parenthood is grandchildren, and the Rigs- 
bees have been rewarded with 19! Betsy's 
life is a busy one, with many interests 
outside the home — including church 
work, club work, hospital auxiliary, etc. 

Pauline Coble Coleman is very modest 
about her grandchildren, in spite of the 
fact that they are all in accelerated classes 
at school. The oldest will be a junior in 
high school next year, and is being 

groomed for Culver. Since her daughter 
Anne (Salem '51) and the two daughters- 
in-law are all Salem girls, she is hoping 
that the granddaughters will become a 
part of that continuity — the sort of 
thing that has been going on at Salem 
for generations. 

It was good to hear from Lib Felton 
Andrews after such a long, long time. She 
wrote, "Don't put me in The Bulletin — 
no news but grandchildren, and every- 
body has them." (Look, Lib, / am people 
too, and I only have a CAT! ) She travels 
a lot, and never misses the New York 
shows that come to Memphis. 

Eunice Payne Flynt enjoys her three 
grandsons, and although she has given up

There was wonderful news from Kath-

— the recent birth of the third grandchild, 
but the first to bear the Howard name. 
Her son Herbert and his Belgian wife have 
been on government missions in Russia 
for most of the past three years, but are 
now living in Washington. 

Although she retired as a piano teacher 
at Salem several years ago, Harriet Greider 
has a number of private pupils, and lives 
in her own apartment at Belo House. 
(When I was in W-S in May 1962, I 
heard of the wonderful remodeling job 
that had been done there, and was wishing 
that I was eligible for one.) 

Buddie Hearne Nicolson had her annual 
visit to Gastonia recently, and it was a de- 
lightful one. (You remember that she 
taught there for a number of years in the 
State Orthopedic Hospital for Children.) 
Her hearing is greatly improved after a 
stapedectomy in 1962, and she leads an 
active, happy life. 

I was so interested in Nannie Jones' 
card — a picture of the Brothers House, 
which has been so successfully restored 
as a part of Old Salem. She is living in 
the family home at Walnut Cove, and is 
still Executive Secretary for the Stokes 
County Chapter of the American Red 

Rachel Luckenbach Holcomb reports so 
many "activities" that it would take an 
extra page in The Bulletin to report them! 
She is very active in United Church 
Women, and in United Nations work — 
having helped to put on UN workshops 
in five N. C. cities last September. She 
enjoys having her son Bill and his family 
nearby in Mount Airy. 

Nita Morgan's retirement from an ac- 
tive business career started a year ago, and 
she has enjoyed every minute of it — both 
at home and in outside activities. She says 
she is working on an advanced course in 
algebra, geometry, etc. — which impressed 
me a lot, as one who couldn't possibly 
pass a test in third grade arithmetic! 

Clyde Shore Griffin's son Bill, an Epis- 
copal minister, teaches Old Testament and 
Hebrew at Sewanee. He and his wife are 
now on a 6-months leave at New Haven, 
to complete the dissertation for his PhD. 
Clyde's daughter Betty (Salem '51) has 
a son and a daughter. The Griffins were 
planning a trip to Pompano Beach right 
after Christmas, to get her arthritis out of 
the cold weather. (Would that she could 
take mine along with her! ) 


It was good to hear from my old pal 
Sing Thorpe Peavy — and she reported that 
she and "Doc", and son Jack and his 
family were fine. 

And last, but by no means least, comes 
our dear "Luisy" Wilkinson. Her right 
eye is improving daily after an operation, 
and she is "back on the job" though tak- 
ing it easier, and slipping away from the 
job more often. 

As for me — well, outside of high blood 
in my right food and knee to make carry- 
ing a cane a good idea when I go out, you 
might say I'm in the "pink of condition", 
pressure, emphysema, and enough arthritis 
(Oh, I forgot to mention rapidly falling 
hair). Even so, there is some life in the 
old gal yet. My snappy black lacquer cane 
(with a silver band) sported a red bow 
and a tinker bell for Christmas; and, 
though I only need it for curbs and steps 
without a railing, I love the way ALL 
traffic stops when I come to a corner — 
and I lean on the cane just a bit, so they 
won't think they've stopped in vain! It's 
also very helpful for plane-traveling; every- 
body wants to help and I let 'em! 

The deadline for the Spring Bulletin is 
March 15th, so PLEASE let me hear from 
some of you silent ones by that time.

Nancy Hankins Van Zandt writes of 
coming to Salem on the opening day of 
school "when students and faculty are all 
buzzing around getting ready for the 
opening convocation — at 3:30 instead of 
the morning hour in our day. Having at- 
tended Salem from 4th grade on and 
taught one year after graduation, I have 
always had a very warm spot in my heart 
for her." Nancy also reports her mother

Ruth Reeves Wilson's daughter, wrote 
that she was busy in community affairs, 
that her sister Caroline loves Mary Bald- 
win, and her father is fine. Bright Mc- 

Kemie Johnson's card told of their new 
home in Sarasota, Florida; "It's been a 
hectic year but now that it is behind and 
we are settled it is just grand here. We 
have been able to go swimming almost 
every day. I'm enjoying gardening and 
have joined a painting class. (The town 
is alive with them.) Our neighbors are 
very nice and we did have friends here 
so we are meeting people."

I regret that the sudden death early in 
September of our beloved classmate, Olive 
Belle 'Williams Roscoe, did not reach the 
Alumnae Office in time for the Autumn 
Bulletin. Our sympathy has been sent to 
George, who came with Olive Belle to 
our reunion at Commencement, and the 
two daughters. 

Now comes the sad news from "Brad- 
ham", in Edenton, of the death December 
8 of her husband. Cranberry Tucker. He 
suffered a fatal heart attack while visiting 
his mother in Hartford. 

There has been happy news, too. Paul- 
ine Turner Daughton wrote at Christmas 
of the mid-November wedding of her 
widowed daughter, Becca, to a Naval Of- 
ficer. Betsy, the oldest daughter, is work- 
ing in Norfolk, Tom is in South America, 
and Jon Lee and her husband are pur- 
suing his Ph.D. degree in English Lit at 
Vanderbilt University. All were at home 
in Sparta for the wedding. 

Regrets came via Christmas cards at 
missing our Class Reunion from Lillian 
■Watkins, in Salisbury, who was involved 
with her music students and summer 
camp and from Gladys Sills Howel, in 
Rochester, N. Y., who was enjoying a 
wonderful European holiday with her busy 
Utilities Company President husband. 

Earlier regrets came from Jane Noble 
Rees, Westport, Conn., with news of three 
brilliant grown sons and their activities. 

Your reporter divided the Christmas 
holidays as Caesar divided Gaul — into 
three parts. The first was spent in Alex- 
andria, "Va., where, among other pre- 
Christmas adventures, I collaborated with 
sister alumnae Mildred Fleming Councilor 
and Rachel Carroll Hines in making and 
hanging evergreen festoons on the DAR 
Memorial Continental Hall in "Washing- 
ton, D. C. and with Mildred in another 
project involving a handsome 'Victorian 
House in Georgetown which was decora- 
ted for Christmas to raise funds for the 
Georgetown Home for Aged "Women and 
the Washington Garden Center. 

Part two was spent in Salem, across 
Church Street from the new dormitory, 
still under construction. Now, as New 
Year approaches, I am in Charlotte with 
my sister Laura, scrawling these notes in 

Early Christmas cards brought greet-

on the retired list, my husband and I are 
constantly busy. My husband continues his 
technological interest in the structure of 
glass and also genealogical interest in nu- 
merous eastern and southern families. My 
church and club activities are quite enough 
for me, but, in addition, I serve as secre- 
tary to my husband who seems to always 
have something for me to do in my 'idle' 
time (the latest being the typing of an 
164-page manuscript for publication). My 
son is a graduate from Maryland Univer-

her own way in three years. And I hope 
Rosella is right — fot two children in 
Europe isn't easy for parents. 

Then in September we couldn't stand 
it any longer, so my husband and I 
went to Amsterdam where Tim met us 
with his pack on his back and Sherry 
arrived by Wagon Lits. Mama was so 
hapcy to have her brood together she 
burst into tears — much to Tim and 
Sherry's annoyance. We rented a Volks-

Europe for it was the 4th time in Europe 
for the kids and they wanted to con-

and my husband says he'll never go

We were there two months, traveling in

In August we traveled on the Continent." 

Babbie Way Campbell writes, "My son, 
Tom, graduated from 'Vanderbilt and 
entered Medical School there this Fall. He 
seems to be achieving what I never finish- 
ed. He was a Merit Scholar and has now 
received a grant for his medical training. 
Daughter Marietta is a junior at the 
University of Tennessee in Home Ec. and 
very active in campus life. We are 
enormously proud of our children. Both 
work each summer to helo with college 
expenses. My husband Tom and I live 
very quietly ten miles from town, raise 
bird dogs, fish Douglas Lake nearby, and 
diet to regain our lost figures. I teach 
in a small high school and have taught 
numerous subjects, sciences, math, Latin, 
anything needed. My students have always 
done well each year at Southern Ap- 
palachian Science Fair. This is the high- 
light of my school year. 

Does anyone ever hear from Ann 
Taylor or Pat Padrick.' I would love to 
hear from them." 

Pat Padrick Taylor in Ft. Pierce says 

she is busy with "the usual. " Besides 
teaching, that includes her youngest of

Anna Withers Bair and Clifford are 
settled in Elizabeth City, where he has 
become associate professor of music at 
the College of the Albemarle. He also 
serves as artistic director for the Fine 
Arts Council of the Albemarle Area 
Development Association. Anna, mean- 
while, teaches piano and organ, history 
of art, and, next year, music theory at 
the College. In January she became 
organist-choirmaster of the beautiful old 
(1760) St. Paul's Episcopal Church in 
nearby Edenton. Last summer she ran a 
Boy's Choir Camp at Laurel Ridge with 
men and boys from seven states attending. 
It was patterned after the English Choir 
Courses, there being only one other such 
camp in the U. S. and one in Canada. 
After nine years of Boy's Choir in High 
Point, she is hoping to begin one in 
Edenton. Anna says that Jesse Skinner 
Gaither has been most helpful in getting 
them "settled" in Elizabeth City and that 
she has enjoyed meeting other Salem girls 
there. The Bairs make their home at 
1201 West Church Street.

A letter written for Ginny Gough 
Hardwick, our correspondent, by her son 
Roland, tells of a fall that she has had 
since Christmas. In the fall, Ginny broke 
her right wrist, which hampers her in 
her attentions to her mother, who suffered 
a stroke the day after Christmas. Our 
thoughts will be with you, Ginny, and we 
hope that you and your mother will soon 
be better. 

Lou Freeman Englehardt writes that she 
and her family were all together for the 
first time in three years, as son Tom had 
just gotten home from three years with 
Uncle Sam. Brandon is quite a young 
lady. Lou helps husband Earl in his 
office, tries to improve her golf game, 
and runs the "proverbial taxi". 

Cordelia Lowry Harris wrote of a busy 
fall. Daughter Delia is at Centenary 
College in Hackettstown, N. J. 

A most interesting letter from B. C. 
Dunford came in answer to a card of 
inquiry from Ginny. He and his "esteem- 
ed spouse," Nancy Ridenhour '46, are 
enjoying the Deep South very much, 
with a yard full of magnolias, azaleas, 
camellias, dogwoods, redbuds, and a lot 
of stuff I am unfamiliar with, since I am 
certainly no horticulturist. We also have 
29 longleafed pine trees, each of which 
is shedding needles by the ton. We spend 
most of our spare time raking 'em up! 
On the strength of Masters' Degrees 
(University of Texas) and a coveted Ph.D. 
from the Eastman School of Music, 
Rochester, N. Y. we are associated with 
William Carey College here in Hatties- 


burg. Nan is Assistant Prof, of Piano; I 
am serving as Professor and Chairman of 
the Department of Music Theory. In 
addition, we give about 12 to 15 duo- 
piano concerts a year, compose every 
chance we get, accept commissions for 
arrangements of practically any music for 
practically any medium, do some lectur- 
ing to clubs, conduct orchestras, bands, 
choruses, or choirs, and sometimes play 
organ and piano for church services and 
recitals. We both have published works; 
Nan sticks to piano, while I have 19 
things for band and 2 for chorus in 
print. I have been lucky enough to have 
my orchestral works performed by such 
organizations as the Cincinnati Symphony, 
the Brevard Symphony of Brevard Music 
Center, the Oklahoma City Symphony 
Orchestra (including a performance on 
the VOICE OF AMERICA program— and 
my music actually got behind the Iron 
Curtain!), the Rochester Philharmonic, 
and others. Nan is not only a soloist; 
she is — in my opinion — the best ac- 
companist in Mississippi, and is in great 
demand in that capacity. We are the 
proud possessors of an incredible dog of 
dubious ancestry, who tolerates the music 
music we make at home on our two 
Steinway grands — but who goes into abso- 
lute ecstasy when the National Anthem or 
something else is played most miserably 
on a Hammond organ just before a 
baseball game. That's about all, except 
that Nan is the finest cook in Mississippi, 
and I am having considerable trouble in 
maintaining an acceptable waistline. Of 
course, being only 135 miles from New 
Orleans doesn't help our diet any, either. 
We try to sample the menu at Antoine's, 
Arnaud's et. al. every now and then, just to 
see that the gourmet reputation that 
New Orleans has enjoyed for years is 
not deteriorating. This, then, is a not- 
too-brief but certainly not unhappy history 
of our various doings since we arrived 
here in August '63. Hope you haven't 
been bored stiff! One more thing: don't 
belive everything you read about Missis- 
sippi. The state has its share of trouble- 
makers, as does every place on earth — 
and bad things have certainly happened 
here, but not everything that has been 
printed and accepted as Gospel truth, by 
those who don't know any better. Best 
regards to you — it was good to hear 
from you!" 

Helen Jones Thompson's daughter Ann

Martha Ledbetter Haynes of Rockingham 
on the tour. 

Miss Evabeile Covington was the lunch- 
eon guest of Dot Hutaff in Fayetteville 
this fall, and I had the pleasure of her 
company. Miss Covington looks younget 
than ever, and talked interestingly on so 
many timely topics! I believe she has 
discovered the fountain of youth near 
Salem Square. 

Please send news to Mrs. J. F. Hard- 
wick, 355 Broad Street, Salem, Virginia. 

The Class of 37 appreciates Ethel's 
willingness to pinch hit so ably for

Dear 48'ers, 

I'm writing this at the very last minute 
because we moved to our new house on 
December IS, and have been somewhat 
busy, what with Christmas and moving. 
Please note my new address at the top of 
the column, and send news to me for the 
next issue by March 1. I still have some 
news to report about summer vacations 
and so on. 

A letter from Peggy Broddus Douglas 
in August told that she has been under- 
going plastic surgery at Duke Hospital to 
repair damage she sustained in the auto

Jean Pierce Baily and husband Joe came

the usual amount of children's activities." 
Kathleen is 12, Edwin 11, Robert 7 and 
Jonathan 3. "I've been very pleased to 
have been able to make use of my majors 
and minor since leaving Salem. I have 
tutored English and French and thorough-

Indirect results I realize more often in

appreciation of the arts and nature. 
Through tradition and atmosphere, Sa-

Since most of our news was gleaned 
for the November 15 deadline, it is just 
a shade old. However, I'm sure there are 
many of you who haven't heard it, so 
maybe it's not too stale. As the corre- 
spondents before me can vouch, it is quite 
disheartening to send out 15 to 25 cards 
and letters and get so few replies, so 
please, pretty please, get your news roll-

Bitsy Green Elrod and her husband

Carolyn Taylor Anthony and family 
moved to 130 Amity Street, Brooklyn in 
the fall. Son Robert is growing and was 
three right after Christmas. Carolyn is 
still working for David McKay (book pub- 
lishers) at 750 Third Street. She reported 
seeing Tootsie Pethel and Dale Smith 
Warner (1950) while they were in N. Y. 

Tootsie and Blair, age 7, joined Fran in 
NYC the end of July. They took in the 
World's Fair for one whole day and were 
completely immobile at the end of the 
day. Tootsie said, "Saw 9 shows and pa- 
villions. The fair seems to me to be both 
gaudy and fascinating. I would rate the 
short movie (The Parable) at the Protes- 
tant and Orthodox Pavillion the most 
disturbing and interesting thing we saw, 
(which is something, considering the fact 
that it's pitted against Walt Disney all 
over the place.) 

"We visited one evening with Carolyn 
Anthony and husband Bob. Both are in- 
teresting, with unusual jobs during the 
day and a boy-child to greet them at the 
end of the day. Carolyn and I swapped 
children pictures and out-bragged each 
other a good part of the evening." 

Joan Hassler Brown didn't make it to

As I do every Christmas, I can hardly 
wait to get cards, especially those with 
notes and letters. For the past 1 1 years 
Mary Willis Truluck has had a family 
letter with a picture. Usually one of the 
children writes the letter. This year it 
was written by Paul Claude who made 
his appearance on Sept. 21, 1964. He says: 
"I'm the dearest, sweetest, bright eyed 
little fellow you ever saw. Mother had 
quite a time getting me here. She was in 
bed a great deal this past yeai but is feel- 
ing fine once again. We now have a teen- 
ager in the house! Ray reached this status 
and celebrated with a spaghetti and twist 
party. He is a Star Scout. Mother just 
couldn't manage without twelve year old 
Lynda. She changes and feeds me just like 
a second mama. Being a Cadette in Scouts, 
a third year music student and a seventh 
grader keeps her happy but busy. With 
blonde hair flying and blue eyes shining. 
Lea hits the house like a small cyclone, 
rushing home from first grade each day 
just to hold me. After fifteen years of 
married life. Daddy has decided to keep 
Mother. This decision was definitely 
reached while Mother was in the hospital. 
He put 383 miles on the car in three days 
carrying Ray, Lynda and Lea to schools. 
Scouts, and music. This included picking 
up Annie Mae, our maid, who has been 
with us seven years now. His trips to the 
grocery store and shops for unexpected 
items were also new experiences. Mom 
had to laugh when he said, after an 
especially hectic time, 'Honey, I'll never 
come home again and ask what did you 
do today?' Daddy continues to enjoy his 
work at Canal Insurance Company. He was 
elected to the Federation of Insurance 
Counsel. Several extended trips took him 
to the far West and far North." 

We missed getting the Kooglers' most 
interesting letter for the second year. Hope 
we're not off your list, Margery. Please 
let us hear from you all. 

Virginia Coburn Powell sent their card 
which is a color picture of their family. 
She wrote that she knew we had a won- 
derful time at the Reunion and missed 
being with us. 

The Spencers had a trip to the Bahamas, 
thanks to Bill's company, Hanes. Nell 
Penn said it was fabulous. 

The Shepherds enjoyed Christmas more 
this year since Jean is now 13 months old 
and noticed all the bright colors and lights. 
She still thinks that everytime she goes to 
sleep "Clas-Clas" should come. 

It looks as if I am going to have to 
start writing the local girls if I ever ex- 
pect to get any news. I want you to know 
that none of you ever stay at home! 
Seriously, each time I have tried to call 
you and go down the list several times 
and never catch you. Please then before 
March 15, won't you please call me at 
722-06^0. Of course, it may take several 
calls to get me, too, but won't you try? 

My most sincere thanks to Bitsy who 
knows some news and always writes.

Thanks to Christmas cards, we've got a 
bit of news for our column. The key word 
in every note is BUSY. "Dee" Allen Kern 
says she certainly is. Mary Allen is in 
fourth grade, and Bill is in kindergarten 
at Wake Forest ( "his college" ) . They

Bowman Hutton was ill last year and 
wrote me all about it, but forgot to mail 
the letter! They're busy furnishing and 
finishing their new home. (I still have 
hopes of receiving that letter! ) Blake Car- 
ter Elmore sent a picture of the reason 
she is too busy to write . . . her four 
adorable children! Daisy Chonis Stathakis 
also sent an adorable picture. Their three- 
year-old Debbie looks exactly like Daisy! 
They are moving into their new home in 
January, but forgot to include the new ad- 
dress. Sarah Clark Whitrock sent a pic- 
ture of their two precious children. They 
live in Jacksonville, Fla., and Sarah has 
taken up surfing! Palmer is in first grade 
and little Sarah is busy keeping big Sarah 
busy. Mary Campbell Craig Stromire tells 
about their little community of Floridians 
in the N. C. mountains. They migrate 
back and forth. Anne is in fourth grade, 
"Boo" is in nursery school and "Tubby" 
keeps mother busy at home. Alice Blake 
Dobson Simonson is busy getting Bill, 
Anne, Sally, Billy, Jimmy, Johnny, and 
their cat ready to move to Madrid (yes, 
SPAIN! ) in February. She says if we 
happen to be in the neighborhood, please 
drop in! Martha Fitchett Ray writes that 
little Newton is in second grade and Chris, 
four, is at home. The Rays and the Hut- 
tons went on a cruise through the Bahamas 
last summer. Nina Gray Wallace went to 
Greece last April. Their children, William 
7, Elizabeth 6, and Isaac 3, were joined 
by a baby sister, Martha, on November 
12th. Carol Stortz Howells spends 12 
weeks each summer in the Poconos since 
Paul is in charge of three camps that serve 
over 550 churches. He is busy relocating 
these camps because Uncle Sam is flood- 
ing the valley where they are located. 
Their boys (8 and 10) and girls (4 and 

5 ) love living within sight of Valley 
Forge during the winter months. Ralph 
Lawrence is still single. He works as a 
teletype operator at McLean Trucking. He 
has just completed remodelling his home 
in Elkin and has become quite interested 
in ESP. Jean Patton French is delighted 
to have Bob at ASO in Philadelphia, 
though he spends much time in Ft. Worth, 
Texas. They love their new nei.ehborhood, 
and Suzie's school. They have a four- 
footed addition to their family ... a 
Daschund. Margaret Thomas Bourne has 
moved, too. They're now in Houston, and 
she and Lola Dawson Gillebaard have had 
their own little reunion! Margaret ran 
into Sally Ann Knight Seabury in church 
in Houston! They stay busy with Kath- 
erine (8), Henry III C3), Thomas (2), 
and their addition due in February. Julia 
Timberlake Bryant is in GatesviUe in a 
new home. Both of her girls are in school 
. . . Bettie is in third grade, Mary is in 

We have enjoyed a busy year, too. No 
momentous events or trips . . . just busy. 
Cris is in fifth grade, Eddy is in fourth 
and Walter is in kindergarten. We look 
forward to another busy year, but hope 
this one will bring many notes from all of

6V2, and Dorthea Fay 9V3 are enjoy- 
ing Washington, D. C. (7713 Dublin 
Drive ) . "Though we miss England so 
very much — history, sightseeing, the arts 
and culture in general, D. C. was a good 
place to come after England and makes the 
departure less hard. In England I taught 
4 years and we enjoyed two summer vaca- 
tions on the continent. Al was one of the 
outstanding A.F. supply officers this last 
year, became a captain this past September 
and of course, is making the Air Force 
his career. As you can tell, I'm terribly 
proud of him. Hope to bring the girls 
down to Salem for May Day." 

Susan DeFrese MilhoUin and Charles 
were transferred to Atlanta. He is with 
Pure Oil Company. Their children are

Jim and Phyllis Forrest Sinclair an- 
nounced the arrival of their second child

A Christmas card from Tom and Jean 
Henry Long was signed not only with 
daughter Gini but also Thomas (Novem- 
ber 17, 1964.) Jean lives in Richmond. 

If you weren't at Reunion, you can bet 
we talked about you — "Where in the 
world is 'Boop'.' Does anyone know 
Cackie Post's address?" We did learn that 
Puddin' Bass is supervisor of the private 
patient clinic at N. C. Memorial Hospital 
in Chapel Hill. We understand that Nancy 
Huffard is married and lives in Atlanta, 
but we would like some details on that. 
Ingrid Parmele is Mrs. John McAden and 
lives in Hickory (P. O. Box 173). But 
there are many of you we haven't heard 
from in years. Won't you let us in on 
your years since Salem? 

As promised I want to share with you 
the letters I received last spring from some 
of the girls who wanted but were unable 
to come to Reunion. Please remember that 
these letters were written nearly a year 

A lovely long letter from Euber Roberts 
Collins told of her busy life doing "what 
most all mamas do." She reported on live- 
ly activities from sons Monty, Jr. (9), 
Bob ( 8 ) , Perry ( 5 ) and 2 year old daugh- 
ter Mary Katherine, "queen bee of this 
household." Now they're all a year older 
and I bet Mary Katherine is even more 
of a queen bee! 

Anna Katharine Dobson Parker also re- 
ported an only daughter with three older 
brothers. Henry is now 8, Bobby 7, Tom- 
my 6, and Molly 2V2. The Parkers are 
at 249 N. Bridge St. in Elkin where 
Sellars is with Chatham Mfg. Co. 

Jean Calhoun Turlington had chatted 
with Caroline Ross Burroughs in Jackson- 
ville in January (1964) and said she was 
busy with 2 sons. Husband Dick is a city 
councilman there. Catherine Chenoweth 
Ross and three children are in Ohio where 
husband John is in professional Air Force. 
Selma was unable to come to Reunion be- 
cause son Tom had mumps encephalitis. 
She noted on a Christmas card to me that 
he was "fully recovered with no handi- 
cap and we are so grateful." And we are 
so happy for you all, Selma. 

Joanne Moody Clark said she had a 
full schedule with three sons and husband 
Bob who is a physician in Lookout Mt., 
Tenn. Rex was in kindergarten at the time 
of her letter, leaving John and Allen 
("very blonde") at home to entertain 
mama. (The next one should be a girl, 
Jody, according to the ways things seem 
to go in this class. ) She also reported 
visiting briefly with Sarah Hobson Stowers. 

Anne Robertson JVIorgan wrote a de- 
lighrful letter. "Our daughter Laura is 
now five feet tali ... the city school 
people moved her ahead a year last fall, 
so she'll be finishing fifth grade at 9. 
Churchill is 7 and quite a socialite. He 
can talk his way into or out of most any- 
thing. Anne Willis (15 months) is our 
do-it-yourself grandchild and we're all en- 
joying her tremendously." (Quoted as of 
May, 1964) Anne and Zeb arc in Decatur, 

Jean Lewis Davis wrote from Charlotte 
that she was involved in building a house. 
She, Bill, and their 3 children hoped to 
move into it before school opened last 
September. (New address: 6949 Knights- 
wood Drive) Jean said she had seen Jo 
Wampler Chambers who was also in 
Charlotte at that time. 

And a letter from Jo confirmed that 
they had come to Charlotte just before 
Christmas (1963) but were not sure how 
long they would be there. She and Coy 
and daughters Mary Leslie ( now 1 1 ) and 
Mindy ( 5 ) have been very much on the 
move these last few years. However, after 
she left Salem, Jo attended the Univ. of 
Tennessee for 2 years and then Ohio 
State University. She studied music educa- 
tion and teaches "on a small scale" in her 

Sally Hackney Lindley wrote from Hous- 
ton that she and Gene had attended a 
medical meeting at Duke in April and 
would not be heading eastward again for 
awhile. She said they, too, were planning 
to move into a new house in May. 

The postman also brought another let- 
ter from Texas, this time from Pat Locke 
Miers. Pat was at Salem only during our 
junior year, so many of you missed know- 
ing a delightful girl. She wrote, "Please 
remember me to all the girls. I remember 
you all so fondly and only regret not 
being able to finish my schooling at Sa- 
lem. " Her husband Henry is drama critic 
and amusements editor for the Dallas 
Times Herald. They have a daughter, 4, 
and a son, 2. 

Elaine Elrick Cook is in Stuttgart, Ark- 
ansas, where Tom is a Presbyterian minis- 
ter. Their sons, Thomas and Michael, were 
6 and 4 in the fall of 1964. 

The Christmas mail brought a cheery 
greeting from Pris Henrich Quinn in 'Win- 
ter Park, Fla. Chuck (5-1/2) and Jed (2) 
keep her busy, but she has found time to 
entertain both her parents and Charlie's 
from New Jersey. 

And a welcome back to the south to 
Eleanor Johnson Day. "Pook" and Jimmy 
and their three children are now in New- 
port News, 'Va. (425 Logan Place) as 
Jimmy is with the Newport News Ship- 
building and Dry Dock Co. "Pook" has 
enrolled at 'William and Mary in 'Williams- 
burg, "hoping to get my teacher's certifi- 

Isn't that a wonderful collection of 
news? And now, I fear, I face the dry 
season, unless the rest of you will send 
me a note or two. It's so wonderful to 
receive mail from you, and I wish I could 
reply to each of you who take the time to 
write. In lieu of that please know i am 
most grateful. From Bob and me and our 
four, a happy new year to you all. 


Erika Huber was "very busy before 
Christmas with school preparing exams 
for our girls to begin after holidays. Then 
there was all the baking. We had Ru- 
dolph's mother with us here in Bremen for 
the first time after the building of the 
Wall. The Communist Government has 
permitted that people over 60 see their 
relatives in Western Germany. Thousands 
came — you can imagine that we have been 
busy trying to buy, to cook, to show her 
all sorts of things she cannot get. During 
our stay in Dresden we met quite a num- 
ber of Moravians. They are very unhappy 
because all their excellent schools are 
closed by the government. They may con- 
tinue school work but under strict state 
direction and without church influence. " 
How good it would be if Erika and Ru- 
dolph should get to visit her sister in 
Mexico City — Salem is on the path. They 
expect to move to Hamburg this spring. 

Another Strong Scholar is Guillemette 
Roussel Mangione who is teaching at Arch- 
bishop Curley High School, 3701 Sinclair 
Lane, Baltimore, Md. How nice to have 
her back in the U. S. and near.

Happy New Year to all of you, and I 
hope you are planning now to return for 
our big 10th Reunion. I have talked with 
Betty Lynn Robinson and Carolyn Knee- 
burg Chappell and they are making some 
big plans. I've written several motels for 
information and will let everyone know as 
soon as possible what's going on. 

Betsy Liles Gant and Francine Pitts 
Backman have babies due in April, and 
will wait to see about attending, Betsy and 
Eddie are starting a new home in Burling- 
ton "as we have babies stacked in the bed- 
rooms." The Gants are proud of their new 
Glen Raven office building recently open- 
ed. Many thanks to Betsy for writing the 
news last time. 

Francine is living near Allentown, Pa. 
(Box 92, Mainland, Pa.). Meyer is in the 
first grade and Fred is in kindergarten. 
We hope to get up to see them soon, 
and will try and get Bobbie Kuss Stabile 
to meet us there. Bobbie writes that they 
are enjoying Jana Sue, born August 5th. 
Now 4-1/2 year old Judy has someone to 
hand down her little frills to. Bobbie plans 
to bring Jerry to our 10th Reunion so he 
"can sample the wondrous South." 

Jane Little Gibson will be moving to 
Charlotte in the Spring. Bob has been 
made a vice-president of Miller Motor Ex- 
press. Jennifer McKeithen was born Oc- 
tober 20th. Rob is doing well in first 
grade and Tommy, age 4, a "little terror." 
Unless Jane is in the midst of moving, 
she will be at Reunion. 

Miracles do happen — after ten years, I 
received a wonderful note from Barbara 
Smith Huss. Hunter is stationed in Ta- 


coma, Washington (11015 N. Star Way, 
SW) "Little Hunter is in first grade . . . 
Richard is a bundle of mischief and will 
probably make me gray early. Barbie is 
my helper and loves it, and John is the 
youngest, quite precious and quite spoiled 
— almost three." 

Kay Cunningham Berry's note was price- 
less. She must give us pointers on taking 
30 teenagers camping. She says "you 
haven't experienced exhaustion until you 
have done this, it makes young ones and 
their problems seem like a breeze." She 
and Bard will come East in May, for the 
Reunion. "Aunt Sal" (Sally Reiland ) spent 
Christmas with the Berrys. 

Ann Lang Blackmon and Bob will be 
with us in May. Lang is in kindergarten 
and Lee in a play group. They all stay busy 
in Birmingham. 

Carolyn Watlington Fagon, Roy and 
Sonny looked so good on their Christmas 
card. They have enjoyed traveling around 
Texas, and "feel pretty settled in Houston." 

Sue Jones Davis' card was also a family 
picture with the debut of Ellis Rhyne, born 
September 25th. The Davises will be join- 
ing us. 

Pat Marsh Sassen had a second son, 
third child on November 9th, William 

Norma Ansell Hahn's two sons Scott 
and Kevin were both born in Germany 
while Dr. Bill was serving two years in 
the Army. Dr. Bill is now an industrial 
physician with U. S. Steel. In July, he 
will start a Psychiatry residency at the 
University of Pittsburg. Norma hears reg- 
ularly from Pat Noah Jones, who's hus- 
band is with the F.B.I. The Joneses live 
near Chicago, and have two sons, ages 
4-1/2 and 2 years. 

Peggy McCanless Efird and Frank love 
living in New Bern, and plan to see us 
at Reunion. 

Well, Jane Brown Pritchard and I are 
now "kissin' kin." My brother married her 
cousin in December. Mrs. Brown and 
Jane gave a delicious luncheon that re- 
minded me of those wonderful boxes of 
goodies that Mrs. Brown and Angeline 
sent us at exam time. We had such a nice 
visit also with Gertie Johnson Revelle 
and Guy. They have a darling home, and 
our Caroline and little Gertie had a won- 
derful time playing together. Who knows, 
maybe some day they will be roommates 
at Salem. Both the Pritchards and Revelles 
will be ar Reunion. Jane is trying to get 
word "to and from" "Guppi" about Re- 

All of you will be hearing from me 
very soon — let's try to have 100"^ par- 
ticipation to the Alumnae Fund this year. 
Get your baby sitters lined up, and we'll 
see you in May. 


Florence Swindell Evans was the only 
Durham artist to win a major award in 
the N. C. Artist's Exhibition at Raleigh 
in December. She won the SI 00 Raleigh 
Woman's Club scholarship. Hers was one 
of only 34 works selected for the show at 
the State Museum ojt of 800 entries. 
Smallest number of works chosen in years.

of trees." 

Guppi Mixon Reeves and Ed suffered 
the sadness last August of losing their 6 
week old son very suddenly. We extend 
to them our sympathy. Their "future 
Salemites" are Katherine 7, Elva MacRae 
going-on 5 and Amanda 3. Son Ed III is 
almost 6. 

Bessie Smith Ratcliffe reports she is 
busy being a secretary for Colonial Dames

meals!!! Just for a year, though." Jeff is
